An unwelcome web of gas infrastructure

April 28, 2015 • Nadia Steinzor

Whenever I see a spiderweb in the woods, I’m awestruck by the careful, diligent work it took and the ability of a small insect to adjust its design to the surrounding trees or bushes. Unfortunately, the opposite is true when it comes to the expanding web of gas pipelines and compressor stations being planned nationwide, which would take years to build, affect large areas, and have impacts that last for decades. 

No wonder communities in the path of development refuse to be ensnared.


Charm City Versus Crude by Rail

March 4, 2015 • Aaron Mintzes

From underneath the Howard Street Bridge, I often hear the squeak of CSX trains traveling underground on my light rail ride home. In Baltimore, we expect increases in the volume of petroleum-by-rail destined for the port terminal. The oil industry desires Baltimore as a destination so they can ship crude oil by tanker to refineries along the East Coast. And, if Congress lifts the oil export ban, these shipments will go worldwide. Targa Resources, a Texas-based company, recently filed a permit to construct a crude oil shipping facility at the Fairfield peninsula in South Baltimore.

The Most Dangerous Road: fracking increases traffic, puts drivers at risk

October 14, 2014 • Hilary Lewis

A new investigation by Houston Public Media and the Houston Chronicle shows Texas highways are now the nation's deadliest, and fracking is to blame.

Fracking requires thousands of truck trips to haul water, frack fluid and more recently, about 4% of fracked oil.

All the increased traffic has led to more accidents and fatalities. And not just in Texas.
