On The Eleventh Day Of Christmas My Country Gave To Me: Eleven Pipelines Piping
Pipelines are green, despite what the environmental activists may claim. In 2013 pipelines transported more than 2.3 billion barrels of oil. That’s oil that was not transported via truck or train, didn’t have to go through a port or get loaded onto a tanker.
Despite the protesters in Florida lead by failed gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, a pipeline is being built across Florida. This could even save lives during their next inevitable hurricane. Despite protesters in Louisiana (who ignore the facts) the pipeline is being built.
Paid protesters made news two years ago when they turned violent to stop construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (costing the region nearly $40 million). It’s now transporting 500,000 barrels a day safely, quietly and responsibly.
It’s too bad an activist judge has halted the Keystone Pipeline, but see the 5thDay of Christmas to understand why this is more of a delay than a concern…
Pipelines are green. They are essential to transport our energy safely and responsibly. They unclog our roads. They lessen the wear and tear on our bridges and are stronger than storms. Here’s to the pipelines: those doing their job and those being built.
