Gas Pipeline
By Ed Stahl


June 14, 2008

We are building a 48 gas pipeline and what direction is it going? The wrong way, east to Canada, not towards Fairbanks, Anchorage, Valdez and other coastal communities of Alaska, on board American-built tanker ships. We could fuel our cars, boats and homes on this gas, and there is no such thing as a natural gas spill.

Build the pipeline parallel to the oil pipeline and provide jobs for Alaskans. Our country is sending its sons to foreign wars to secure oil. What are our Governor and Representatives doing? Sending our country's largest known reserves of clean natural gas to the closest foreign county they can find. Now they want to vote on this before they convene public meetings.

Maybe I'm missing my facts here or something. If so, would someone please straighten me out?
