Oh my God! Did you hear? On Saturday, in Montana, a wind farm spilled almost 50,000 gallons of wind into the Yellowstone River, polluting the local drinking supply.

By Sunday, some residents reported that their water was starting to taste like wind, prompting local officials to truck in fresh water for the residents.

I just hope they never build a huge wind pipe through the middle of America! Imagine the catastrophe if that pipe spilled its contents into the Ogallala Aquifer, contaminating drinking water. The aquifer system supplies drinking water to 82 percent of the 2.3 million people (according to the 1990 census) who live within the boundaries of the aquifer.

Gasoline is $2 a gallon without the Keystone XL pipeline. Can anyone explain why it’s so important?
