A Natural Gas Pipeline In McKibben’s Backyard


While Bill McKibben and the Environmentalist Left focused their attention on stopping the Dakota Access Pipeline this week, Vermont state regulators cleared away the final hurdle for a gas pipeline from Chittenden County to Middlebury, Vermont. Despite McKibben’s growing fame in Leftist circles, he embarrassingly failed in trying to halt a pipeline right in his own backyard.

Despite McKibben’s close personal relationship with Gov. Peter Shumlin (D-VT), and multiple tweets from McKibben – a prolific tweeter – in support of the fight, the pipeline construction in liberal Vermont will move forward.

Bill McKibben’s environmentalist group, 350 Vermont, even staged a very dramatic “Die-In” earlier this summer in protest of the Vermont pipeline. Although the protest ultimately failed, it sure looked like a lot of fun!
