    According to The Center for Biological Diversity, which produced the video, a pipeline with a U.S. address has ruptured roughly 8,000 times in the last 27 years, resulting in more than 500 deaths (red dots on the video) and more than 2,300 injuries (yellow dots on the video).

    Since 1986, pipeline accidents have spilled an average of 76,000 barrels per year, or more than three million gallons. This is equivalent to 200 barrels every day. On average one significant pipeline incident occurs in the country every 30 hours.
