Good to see Del. Chris Hurst on top of this; thanks to him and to the grassroots anti-pipeline activists for all the great work they do. Of course, that raises a few questions: 1) As Free Nelson asks, “Where are you Governor of Virginia?”; 2) Why are so few elected officials speaking out against – and working to stop! – the environmental destruction associated with the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipeline projects; 3) Where are most environmental groups (so far I’ve only heard from grassroots anti-pipeline activists, the Chesapeake Climate Action Network and the Virginia Sierra Club); and 4) Why do the people of Virginia put up with this crap?
