Court quotes Dr. Seuss, pulls permit for pipeline that would cross national forests
A federal court has vacated an environmental permit that would have allowed The Atlantic Coast Pipeline to cross two national forests, according to a court opinion filed Thursday with the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The opinion quotes Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, saying: "We trust the United States Forest Service to 'speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.' ” A review of the permit records led the court to decide that the Forest Service "abdicated its responsibility to preserve national forest resources."

"This conclusion is particularly informed by the Forest Service’s serious environmental concerns that were suddenly, and mysteriously, assuaged in time to meet a private pipeline company’s deadlines," the opinion reads.

The court granted a petition to review the Forest Service's Record of Decision and Special Use Permit, vacate the Forest Service's decisions and remand to the Forest Service for proceedings consistent with the new opinion.

With the last great pipeline debate, the "Keystone" pipeline...

I don't see why they couldn't have just went around the aquifer...?

Looks like 80 miles of additional pipeline would have done it.

Thx :)

May... heads the tories... the by name and definition ‚conservative party’.
Merkel, member of and for 18 years heads the conservative party ever since the effin wall came down.
Macron, was elected to replace an openly socialist president, running and creating a libertarian ‚en marche!‘ party.

You really need to brush up on you knowledge of basic politics / fractions / ideology.

May is the leader of the UK Conservative Party. They beat Labour. Merkel is the leader of the German centre-right Christian Democrats. They beat several left wing parties. Macron is an avowed centrist whose entire platform was based on rejecting left vs right politics. He defeated the left wing Socialist party to take power.

Anerica is an entire developed country of literate adults with internet access. Not understanding basic things like this about the world is pathetic.

When voters can’t take three seconds to inform themselves on basic facts, the result is criminals and mobsters in positions of authority. Bevause they can say “libruls” and get millions of fucking morons to vote for them.

THAT is not sustainable.
