Would You Know What to Do if a CO2 Pipeline Leaks or Ruptures?
On Monday, June 13,  at 7pm, the Coalition to Stop CO2 Pipelines is hosting a webinar for emergency responders (police, fire, sheriff, paramedics, ambulance services), health care providers, and local units of government responsible for public safety (counties, municipalities, and townships).  The purpose of this webinar is to review the hazards of CO2 pipelines; the impact of CO2 on human health; and to begin dialogue with others about how to be prepared for a release of CO2, and what training and equipment is necessary.  CO2 pipelines are under-regulated by the government, and when the rupture, can spread a plume of carbon dioxide a mile or more wide. Carbon Dioxide is harmful to humans and, in high enough concentrations, can cause death within minutes.

CO2 Pipeline Coming to Illinois
Navigator CO2 Ventures, LLC, a Texas  midstream infrastructure company, wants to pipe high-pressure, liquified CO2 from industry clients in South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Iowa where they say it will be stored deep underground.  But the company has said it has not ruled out enhanced oil recovery,. This would perpetuate the use of fossil fuels and increase the amount of CO2 into the atmosphere.

The 1,300-mile long CO2 pipeline is one of the first of what could be many proposed across the Midwest as part of a developing technology called carbon capture and storage. But, CO2 pipelines are new to Illinois, and differ from oil and gas. They pose numerous safety hazards and land use concerns.  If they rupture or leak (and they have), CO2 could asphyxiate humans or livestock within a few miles.  Read more ...

Why Intervene with the ICC?
Navigator CO2 Ventures LLC needs approval from the Illinois Commerce Commission to construct a CO2 pipeline across 240 miles of west-central Illinois. Landowners, municipalities and others who wish to be heard must formally intervene in the approval process.

If you are concerned about what the Navigator pipeline will mean to your land, the value of your property, or the safety of your family, this latest webinar, produced by the Coalition to Stop CO2 pipelines will explain how you can unite with others in your community to make your concerns known.

Public Safety FIRST! 
Watch this April 25, 2022 webinar featuring Coalition to Stop CO2 Pipeline organizers Richard Stuckey, Save Our Illinois Land and Pam and Lan Richart, Eco-Justice Collaborative. This  25-minute presentation and follow-up discussion highlights the many hazards of CO2 pipelines and carbon capture and storage.

While the focus is on Navigator CO2 Venture’s proposal through Christian County, this webinar is for anyone concerned about, or potentially affected by CO2 pipelines or sequestration of carbon dioxide. Watch, and then share widely with friends and colleagues.
