  16. This is WRONG! It can end up causing yet ANOTHER disaster! 🤬🛑🐃💩


  18. The fucking laziest people talking about no pipeline and they’re the ones they use these resources the most without having to lift a finger. what a fucking shame.

  19. "environmental racism" LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Its a pipeline, its supposed to go generally in a straightline. Companies want to be efficient when laying down pipes, has nothing to do with racism… If you want to pay for more gas by all means, just pay for my gas as well.

  20. If it's not going to be a problem with the water system it shouldn't be an issue at all there are gas lines running to every house in the city this is just another one. But leave it to our Congressman to make it a racial issue for him to jump up and be the hero piece of work.. I'm sure that young man means well but he's probably trying to become a politician himself, if wrong I'll apologize, but I have a feeling. and think of the jobs that would creat. make that part of your complaint, you want local labor

  21. Ask yourself, Why do they always put pipelines through poor or nonwhite neighborhoods? They never put them in white or upper middle class neighborhoods. They do this because poor people don’t have the resources to fight back. This is wrong because the wealthy, upper class, use most of these resources, in their larger homes and in their larger vehicles and businesses. They need to be responsible.

  22. What pipeline are you talking about when Joe Biden shut it down is this a propaganda video

  23. They have permits? Well then you guys lost already, unless you have millions of dollars to compete in the bribery ("lobbying") war.

  24. America needs to ban automobile manufacturers from manufacturing new vehicles every year.

  27. How do they explain putting a pipeline over the cities aquifer

  28. But progress comes with a cost. That is unacceptable. Instead of saying no to Pipeline, why dont they come up with a better plan?

  29. Sorry but the rich must get richer.
