Antis Lose Court Decision to Stop Constitution Pipe Construction

Some of the worst of the worst radicalized environmental groups–Catskill Mountainkeeper, Sierra Club, Riverkeeper, Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society and Clean Air Council–had filed a request in U.S. District Court for the 2nd Circuit to stop Williams from “all activities” related to constructing the Constitution Pipeline. The Constitution, you may recall, is a 125-mile pipeline that will deliver natural gas from Susquehanna County, PA to Schoharie County, NY, connecting with two interstate pipelines that will carry that gas to points along the Eastern seaboard.

Tree-clearing permission seems to have tipped the antis over into a state of near-delirium. They filed a request to stop all Constitution construction activity–and the 2nd Circuit has denied their request.
