Here’s a video playlist of the real questions asked at the Gilchrist County Commission where everybody could see Sabal Trail and Spectra Energy answering about their proposed 36-inch fracked methane pipeline in a 100-foot right of way: or not answering. This is 1 hour and 27 minutes worth of video. I didn’t get all of it because both camera batteries ran down and it took a bit to find a plug. This interrogation went on for more than two hours total. Well done, Gilchrist County, staff, citizens, and everybody who asked questions.
Update 28 Sep 2014: A couple of notable questions:
- Adapt natural gas pipeline to renewable resources? –Laura Dailey @ GCC 2014-02-20
- 1,000 feet is not enough –Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson @ GCC 2014-02-20
5:00 p.m. Sabal Trail Workshop
As mentioned in local government pipeline responsibilities, other local governments could do this, and more. For example, Lowndes County, Georgia with 114,552 population compared to 16,815 for Gilchrist County (2012 est.) could do more.
