Hmmmm...... Let's consider something written here, such as this Appalachian fellow sees this:
"The reality is that there’s no way to safely transport the highly volatile crude from the Bakken oil field in North Dakota or the heavy crudes from the Alberta tar sands. Instead these extreme fossil fuels should be left in the ground for our safety and to avoid the impending climate catastrophe."
These people should really admit why pipelines aren't built. Warren Buffett, one of their "friends", owns the BNSF Rail Road as well of Electromotive Locomotive Works. Does anyone with a lick of sense really believe that he, a really BIG Democrat, wants anything built that will gut some of his biggest holdings? Nope, movers and shakers such as Mr. Buffet always have their agitprops to tell what the other useful idiots should believe. Yep, believe what Warren Buffett have to say and you can be a superhero by saving the world, too!
I really doubt that the people of West Virginia would take the precepts of this article very seriously, or any other such commentaries advocating the outlawing of oil and coal. In fact, in the 2014 election for congress NOT A SINGLE COUNTY was carried by ANY candidate in the Democratic Party which is expressively against anything unless their people make a profit off of it. These people already have this more figured out than those rich lily-white Harvard folks.
