Sometimes it is hard to write around here.
What, you got a problem with my last post?
Guess that’s me.
Questar may run a 16” pipeline through the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve and judging by visitors coming to this site, nobody gives a damn. Do a google search for this preserve+ oil pipeline and my site comes up at the top along with the post I put up at the Google birding group, which has drawn no response.
I am just one person. This jewel of the desert needs help and it just seems like nobody cares. Not one other blogger has jumped on this, except Shaun over at the Mojave Desert Blog, which is how I heard about the Questar pipeline scheme.
If Shaun hadn’t written about, judging by what’s happened here, we wouldn’t know anything until the bulldozers showed up!
The fact is an oil pipeline once ran through the preserve and it got converted to natural gas use at Questar’s request. Imo, that does not give them the right to run a larger pipeline in just because one was there before. I can’t help but wonder though that perhaps the enviros might not want to take a stand here, just because pipelines do run through the preserve. In fact, I made a video about this about a year ago which I am unable to locate. At the time, I never dreamed that they would try to run a pipeline alongside what was already here, so I guess I need to think more out of the box as they say.
