Pipeline protesters out of step with America, oil industry leader says


Native American protesters blocking the construction of an oil pipeline from North Dakota southwest to Illinois are stopping critical energy infrastructure that would bring a cleaner burning fuel to the market, a top oil official said Tuesday.

American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Jack Gerard told reporters that protesters blocking the Dakota Access pipeline are hurting their own interests. He said the pipeline would bring natural gas to the market, a fuel that he says is responsible for making U.S. carbon emissions the lowest they have been in 20 years, citing the Energy Information Administration.
