In New Zealand, the mentality is "it's never happened before, why are you worried?".
It's never happened before, she'll be right.
Even if it's happened once, they call it a 1 in a 100 (or other number) year event, and so she'll also be right.
There is nobody even in the industry calling for another pipeline.
There is always those who jump up and down saying "I told you so" every time something happens. Sure it would have been looked at but deemed viable probably not. The Titanic sunk.
Who cares, It has happened, We have no redundancy. Oohhhh but I told you so!
Hindsight is the best sight for the second time today.
Lets start the Geekzone Fuel Cooperative initiative. We all go get 750L tankers to tow behind our vehicles and start transporting fuel! Other than that we are all a bunch of critical spectators.
