New Video of Spectra Pipeline Action in New York City from Occupy Pipeline

This graphic details three zones should an explosive event occur at the proposed Spectra natural gas pipeline currently under consideration for construction in lower Manhattan: a 500-foot radius, where everything would be incinerated if the pipeline were operating at the lower end of the pressure scale, around 800 pounds per square inch (psi); an 800-foot radius, where massive damage would occur if the pipeline were to be operating at the maximum 1,450 psi; and a 1,000 foot radius, in which enormous destruction would occur at any pressure.
