In Your Opinion: Pipeline foes are likely hypocrites

The Daily Star

---- — In March 31 edition, Lisa Barr provides a passionate argument against the “dangers” of the Constitution pipeline and fossil fuels in general. Can I just ask how these purveyors of the truth would be going to these highly important meetings in Richmondville, Afton, Oneonta and Milford? 

Would they be going by horse? Walking? Would they be taking their 100 percent electric vehicles, making sure that the electricity used to charge them is not made from anything but the sun, wind or unicorn tears? Hopefully they would not be taking those useful and convenient roads to get there, as they are laced with dangerous fossil fuel products as well.

Luckily, the sky is not falling as these extremists claim it is, because if they went to take cover in their homes, they would find a myriad of products with their origins in the fossil fuel industry.
