I just signed the following petition addressed to: Kimberly D. Bose, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Reject Seaway Crude Pipeline Company's proposed tariffs

Due to the highly acidic and corrosive nature of the diluted tar sands crude which is slated for transportation through the Seaway Crude Pipeline,

and due to the age (36 years) of said pipeline and its original design for carrying natural gas, but more recently having been part of a crude oil network,

and due to the similarity between said pipeline and the Enbridge Lakehead 6B pipeline which ruptured in July of 2010, only five years after it too was repurposed to carry diluted tar sands crude,

and due to Seaway Crude Pipeline Company's statement on their tariff proposals that “The provisions published herein will, if effective, not result in an effect on the quality of the human environment.”, despite the preceding facts,

and due to the fact that the Department of Transportation's Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, as mandated by the U.S. Congress, has yet to complete research and recommendations for regulations governing pipelines designed to carry diluted tar sands crude,

and due to the fact that the F.E.R.C. has admitted that it is not qualified to address current safety regulations of tar sands pipeline construction,

we, the undersigned, petition you to reject the Seaway Crude Pipeline Company's proposed tariffs (docket numbers IS12-225-000 and IS12-226-000 filed 04/13/2012).
