ok but whats the allturntive? With out fuel there is no socialized anything,the truth the population is to vast to feed without fuel/potash/and I know Im spell this wrong(fertlisers).In the old days people werent heathly died,men in perticale died be in their 50/ a lot of children died at birth and of childhood disease.The truth is with out fuels we would be socilaly be a mess food medice and econicmic prodictive would decline if not collapce. I get it about the pipeline passing over water table that a use for drinking and farming so I agree it shouldnt be buit unless it can be built so it doent pass over the undergroud water.That being said pipeline if operated right are envirtment one of the best ways to move fuels/oil/nat gas. But there are allwas thing thet go wrong spills and breaks but you get that with anyway you move them trucks rail.pipeline use a lot less fuel and have fewer accendents.
So I would say be careful for what you wish for you might just get it.
