Is Line 5 Worth the Risk?
Line 5 is a major pipeline that carries oil to and from Canada through Michigan and the Great Lakes – the world's largest source of fresh water by area. Line 5has spilled over 30 times since 1968. The decision to maintain, replace, or shut down Line 5 will have serious implications for Canadian oil and gas development and transport. Dr. Bessette will discuss the perceived risk of underwater pipelines and Line 5's potential for spills under ice and in wintry conditions.
