The amount of pipelines in the United States is rather unprecedented.
Pipeline 101 says, “The U.S. has the largest network of energy pipelines in the world, with more than 2.5 million miles of pipe. The network of crude oil pipelines in the U.S. is extensive. There are approximately 55,000 miles of crude oil trunk lines (usually 8 – 24 inches in diameter) in the U.S. that connect regional markets.”
With President Trump approving the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipeline, the left — and especially the environmentalist groups — have been in an absolute uproar.
However, where were these individuals and associations when 2.5 million miles of pipe were being laid in the ground? That’s right — nowhere.
