Event description

Description

The business of building oil and gas pipelines in America used to be quiet. No longer. While Keystone XL and Dakota Access may have claimed most of the headlines, almost every major pipeline project is now a legal battleground between the industry and activist groups. Many of the current fights erupted in Eastern states as a host of new pipeline projects move forward to link the Marcellus and Utica shale gas fields to power stations and homes across the densely populated East Coast. The legal objections to new natural gas pipelines frequently invoke the downstream impact of additional fossil fuel infrastructure on climate change. Our distinguished panelists represent different perspectives in these pipeline wars and promise an engaging discussion.
