We Have Chosen to Live Not With Pipelines, But BY Pipelines

Mark Perry highlights how Obama is, thankfully, losing the battle over the Keystone XL pipeline.  Mark shows a map of US pipeline infrastructure, which appears to be a map of major pipelines only.  If you add intrastate pipelines as well the map looks like this.  And this map doesn't include "gathering" pipelines for if it did, there would be virtually no white visible in certain areas of the map.  Reality, the United States of America is irretrievably covered, crisscrossed, and generally awash in pipelines.  Our modern society is enabled by this pipeline infrastructure, and we can't have one without the other.  That is how we live.  That is how we've chosen to live.
