More than two months after an aging pipeline cracked open, spilling more than 100,000 gallons of heavy crude oil into a Mayflower neighborhood and a cove of Lake Conway, Exxon Mobil still has not provided federal regulators with even a preliminary cause for the break and has not requested approval to resume transporting oil through that pipeline.

    The article does not indicate what Hale Shelton thinks ExxonMobil is doing that it should not be doing, or what it is not doing that she believes they should be doing. Including information about a leak in a pipeline, owned by Enbridge, Inc., in Michigan has to do with this pipeline leak.

    Perhaps it would be informative to identify the paid spokesman for the Sierra Club as an employee of one the nation's largest lobbying organizations. Note that the Sierra Club is a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization involved in lobbying and political advocacy, and advocates for candidate in municipal, state and national elections. It should also be noted that contributions to the Sierra Club, a 501(c)(4) organization, are not tax deductible.
