    “The Green Room” series on pipelines continues.  In the previous three segments we discovered the web of underground infrastructure is more complex and extensive than most realize.  And, while pipelines are safer than other forms of energy transport, threats to water are high on the list of concerns.  Where are the pipeline policy decisions being made?  In this segment, we look for “the deciders.”  Photo: USEPA on WIKIPEDIA MEDIA COMMONS / WIKIPEDIA.ORG

    Whether crude oil or natural gas, once these fossil fuels are extracted from the ground, they can present flammable and toxic hazards.  Safely transporting them is a major challenge.  In this installment of "The Green Room," we have the second in our series on pipelines.  
  • July 27, 2018:  Pipelines-Part 1 (Radio)
    Why do some people feel oil and gas pipelines are a good and necessary part of our lives, while others fight against them?  To tackle this question, first we need to understand the basics:  We all know what a pipeline is.  But what they carry, where they are, and why there are so many, are questions most of us aren’t so sure about. In this first part of a series on energy pipelines, Barbara Lucas gives us a bit of “Pipelines 101," in "The Green Room."
