Myth Number 3: Carbon Pipelines are Dangerous

With radical special interest groups like the Sierra Club continuing to spread misinformation about carbon pipelines, it’s time to debunk another myth.

This week we will address Sierra Club Iowa’s contention that carbon pipelines are “incredibly dangerous.”

Reality check: Carbon pipelines are safe and secure and utilize state-of-the-art technology such as American-made high-strength steel. For example, the U.S. Department of Transportation mandates that pipelines be placed three feet underground. The $4.5 billion carbon pipeline that will capture and safely store carbon dioxide underground in North Dakota will be at least four feet deep.

It’s clear the Sierra Club and its extremist allies are increasing their attacks on carbon pipelines by trying to mislead the farmers, small business owners, and community members who support these critical infrastructure projects.


Because they are losing the battle at the grassroots as more and more folks gain a better understanding of the Sierra Club’s extremism.

For example, the Sierra Club is “calling for the immediate defunding of the police.” Talk about “incredibly dangerous.”
