BTW I do thank him for letting me know that along with Line 5 we could cut a few cables and see how much he likes being a Yooper on a rather more-permanent basis. It's a pretty decent drive to WI and the ferries were a bitch before Mighty Mac went in.

Looks like I missed the fun. As an ENB equity holder it should be easy to gauge my opinion, but I also travel through the UP and northern MI annually on trips to see family in the D. Beautiful country and I vacation there often.

The problem Michigan has, which is shared by most of the states where greenies over-represent is they produce far less energy than they consume. That includes renewables like solar and wind. Fine, shut the pipeline down, close coal power plants and decommission nuclear. Have fun with rolling black outs and expensive energy.

My biggest worry is that in doing so they'll destroy the environment by denuding the land of trees for fuel. Oh the irony.

Yellowvest...I have a dime I'll give you to call someone who gives a rat's ass what you think. You are a basement-dwelling troll.

The village called and they want their idiot back. Let's see if we can find a taxi to take you there.

Idiots who want to shut down that pipeline must have a very short memory...I lived through the propane price spike of 2014. Where prices doubled / tripled quickly as supplies dwindled.

I can't imagine what they would do without that pipeline in place.

Yep....

I remember that well, and I was just buying propane for a BBQ and other portable use.

**** trying to heat with it. Holllllyeeeeeee sheeeeittt!

And if you think just north of Lansing is bad try it up in the UP where it gets really ****ing OBNOXIOUS cold. I lived in the TC area for a while and that was bad enough -- and I DID pay attention to the UP temps, which were a consistent 10F below that.

Oh by the way these same dickheads who want to shut down Line 5 ALSO want to ban the use of wood or coal. Because greenie, you see. So what's left? Electric. By overhead line, where it's not uncommon to get FEET of snow and have outages that last WEEKS. Never mind the per-kwH price of said power.

I will say this however -- prior to all the DICKHEADS from Chicago buying property up there and putting up a ******ned Christmas Tree worth of PERMANENT lighting on their driveways and whatever resort bull**** they were pulling the astrophotography was UN****INGBELIEVABLE.

Now it's pure DOG****, even in the so-called "Dark Park" near the bridge. I thought it was crap for a number of years but always wondered if it was just my eyes getting older along with the rest of me. Then a couple of years ago my kid and I went up there and, a couple of months later, we went into Ontario and up into Algonquin Provincial Park.

Where it ACTUALLY IS STILL DARK AT NIGHT.

Yeah, that's what Leelanau County used to look like on a clear night. But it no longer does, and never will again.

Sarah was FREAKED OUT -- but then got to do it again, twice, in both New Zealand and Iceland.

She no longer thinks its dark in the US smiley
