Virtual Pipelines: A Dangerous New Way to Transport Fracked Gas by Truck – Resilience

I feel morally obligated to call bullshit on this fear-mongering by people who have no idea how our energy system works.

What’s so new and scary about tried and true trucking with a different liquid in the tanks”

Bashing natural gas pipelines, virtual, or in the ground is the equivalent of bashing climate progress. What do they propose we do? Go back to burning wood? Stay with the fuel oils that put toxic particulates in the air in addition to CO2?

Could it be that the “Many environmental groups” know that this is a very positive interim solution for getting the cleanest possible fuel to homes and industries?

And, it’s even more damaging than that.

The natural gas that cannot get to markets one way or another is not processed to clean pipeline quality gas and ends up being burned in flares with whatever sulfur or other components that would have been removed if the gas could get to markets.
So we want to just leave the unprocessed gas-burning near the wells, or do we want to use it as the cleanest fuel possible to burn?.
