LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Today why not Re-blog a newspaper?
Say no to the pipeline
Don’t let the Sabal Trail pipeline turn the Southeast into the Middle East. Natural gas pipelines are a natural enemy and are targets in addition to the way they frequently blow up on their own. Why build such hazards throughout our country and on private property close to our homes?
Terrorists blew up a natural gas pipeline in the Sinai in Egypt in January. What will stop them from targeting the pipelines in the USA? Nothing!
The Williams Transco Pipeline corroded and blew up in Alabama in 2011, incinerating 65 acres of trees. That is the same size pipeline as Sabal Trail wants to build locally. Spectra energy’s own safety record includes massive explosions, evacuations, property damage, personal injury and even deaths in Texas, Kentucky and New Jersey.
Methane pipelines corrode, leak and explode in the U.S. without enemy action. Let’s not bring any more of them here, making us all potential targets.
It’s time to stop this invasion of our land by a company from Houston.
