I drive a car. I expect hot water when I turn on my faucet to get a shower. I use indoor lights. I have an electric stove! I am an energy user!
Because I’m an energy user I don’t have much room to say don’t install a pipeline in my backyard. So I won’t. I will instead say that I think we need more safety precautions before we install this pipeline. I want automatic shut off valves, and I want men on the ground inspecting the pipe, and I want welding to be checked by professionals with no “spot welding” allowed unless it is authorized by safety experts.
I want the community to have access to the information discovered by the NTSB if an accident occurs and I want the Commonwealth pipeline folks to know that if they use inferior pipe, that Pennsylvania will sue them.
I am willing to accept that America has gone crazy and I’m willing to accept another pipeline snaking across PA, but I want to know it’s going to be safe, protected and insured.
Anyone have a problem with that?
