Navigator CO2 Ventures' plan was to blanket a large swatch of the Midwest with its so-called Heartland Greenway pipeline, which would have captured 15 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually from Midwest ethanol plants and permanently stored it underground.
The "green" cult is obsessed with CO2, believing it to be a "pollutant" that must be stripped out of the air and sent underground far away from humans in order to stop the planet from "warming." This is the cult mythology behind the carbon capture process.
One of the biggest planned projects of its kind, the Navigator CO2 Heartland Greenway scheme was supposed to be one of the pillars of fake president Joe Biden's carbon capture and storage (CCS) climate strategy to stop climate change. It was also supposed to help the ethanol industry meet its emissions goals, which will no longer happen with the help of Navigator CO2.
(Related: There are other companies like Summit Carbon Solutions that are still planning to install carbon capture pipelines in the Midwest, just to be clear.)
Concerning the aforementioned Summit Carbon Solutions project, that one is still moving forward despite similar setbacks and strong opposition from both farmers and environmentalists, which together helped stop the Navigator CO2 project.
According to Summit, it is still "well-positioned to add additional plants and communities to our project footprint," with its first pipeline scheduled to be functional starting in 2026 – Summit's original timeline was to have the pipeline operational in 2024.
It is not every day that typically conservative farmers partner with the likes of the Sierra Club to tackle a threat, but this is what happened in the Midwest in a rare display of unity by the farming community and environmentalists, who together stopped Navigator CO2's disastrous plans for ripping up the Midwest landscape in order to blanket it with CO2 pipelines.
"The people united to resist Navigator at every level, in every corner of every state, and we won," celebrated Jess Mazour, an Iowa organizer with the Sierra Club, which patently opposes the installation of carbon pipelines.
"I, too, oppose carbon pipelines," wrote one commenter on a Watts Up With That story about this rare victory in the fight against green tyranny. "[CO2] should be freely available to enter our deficient atmosphere, to the benefit of plants and carbon-based life itself."
In other words, because CO2 is more of a nutrient than a pollutant, it should be allowed to continue to exist in the atmosphere, just like it has since the beginning of time.
Another pointed out that highly polluting ethanol production would not even be a concern, environmentally speaking, if the industry was not heavily subsidized by the government to avoid allowing for domestic drilling of natural earth-based fuels like oil and gas.
"I find it difficult to believe that growing food crops to convert to fuel can ever make true economic and energetic sense once the subsidies are removed," this person wrote. "The fossil fuel inputs to grow the crop are a lot more than non-zero."
"Yes, it keeps farmers on the land. If they were growing, and selling, food for people in far-flung places, that would probably also benefit the environment in those places."
