This video shows the number of incidents involving fossil fuel pipelines since 1986: 7,978 incidents, 512 deaths, 2,360 injuries, and a total cost of $6.838 billion in property damage. And that says nothing of the "externalized" climate effects that threaten humanity and other costs that the industry refuses to acknowledge.
