It’s not what is in the pipeline but who is burying it.

There has been a lot of chatter about the proposed carbon pipeline and some of the extraordinary actions taken to get it in the ground.

Of course none of this is surprising considering some of the players in this and everything done so far has worked in their playbook.

I asked someone recently who has been around in politics since the late 60’s, “Do you think there is some kind of other agenda when it comes to this pipeline?”

Let’s be brutally honest, grain ethanol is NOT the solution to our energy problems. Green energy is. We should be using all the available farmland we have to grow crops that feed PEOPLE not create waste with an energy source that really isn’t that sustainable. Which brings us back to the ‘agenda’ question.

This person pointed out to me that once the easements are set and the pipeline is approved and buried in the ground the servicer of that line can transport any material thru the line like oil from North Dakota or Canada.

Is it much easier to sell a carbon pipeline that will somehow trickle down to benefit farmers or an oil pipeline?

We know the answer to that question.

The affected landowners need to start asking the carbon pipers what exactly will be in this pipeline because right now there is something flowing and it ain’t carbon.

6 Thoughts on “Is the Carbon Pipeline really for Carbon?

    I suspected this pipeline would be coal slurry from Wyoming. Considering recent train derailments this would make sense. However, the course seems more oriented for transporting oil from North Dakota to the Gulf. Oil can be imported cheaper than profit from export. Oil here must stay here. There’s new solar energy technology deployment that’s more feasible. Wind power has taken off. Green energy will not replace oil and carbon but there’s equilibrium such that environmental impact is acceptable.

    What about an Elon Musk Hyperloop for small people? Perhaps, N or HO scale.

  4. Or it could be filled with your hypocrite bullshit. We know you cant afford solar panels or a Tesla and you certainly haven’t shut the nat gas off to your house. I’m sure when you set your AC to 70 you think of the starving polar bears.

    Whatta douche.
