Well to get a in-State Natural Gas pipeline/bullet line/spur line you HAVE to go thru some Federal Forests. This isn't just the pipeline from the slope. This is also the proposed Nenana pipeline to Fairbanks. THAT will be a huge problem!
What does that also mean to Alaska? That they will not have much option for a pipeline or a road, as you have to bury a LNG pipeline, unless they go along the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, which even though it is going thru Federal Lands, it will still be considered State.... I hope.
Why Obama is doing this has the stink of environmentalists. I wonder how many of them who are telling Obama to do this are natives from Alaska? I wonder how many other Alaskan natives and corporations would be upset with them?
I am not sure about you, but even those whom are environmentalists living in Alaska. How exactly do you heat your home? Fossil Fuels? Wood? Well just in case you didn't realize it, you won't even be able to use the trees for your own use if you live near a Federal Forest. Get a clue liberals!
