The Dakota Access Pipeline Will Lock-In the Emissions of 30 Coal Plants

Lorne Stockman

The Dakota Access pipeline would carry oil from the Bakken formation in North Dakota to Gulf Coast refineries and export terminals via Patoka, Illinois. With a maximum capacity of 570,000 barrels per day (bpd), it could carry over 50% of North Dakota’s current oil production. Ultimately, the net greenhouse gas (GHG) impact of the pipe would depend on what future actions we take to end our fossil fuel addiction and address climate change.

Nothing says greed like exporting our national resources to foreign country's for profit and polluting and poisoning our air and water so big oil can get richer and gas prices can start rising........
