Wisconsin’s Green Fire Work on Oil Pipelines
WI Green Fire, September 25, 2020
Oil pipelines crisscross Wisconsin, but the regulation of these pipelines by the state is not well understood. In this video, we describe Wisconsin’s Green Fire work in 2020 on oil pipelines statewide, and on the proposed re-route of Enbridge Line 5 around the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Reservation in northern Wisconsin. Concerns about energy policy, climate change, and environmental justice are all intertwined with pipeline issues. Wisconsin’s Green Fire and Midwest Environmental Advocates developed a series of guides on the regulation of oil pipelines in Wisconsin.
