American carbon pipeline opponents include environmentalists, lawmakers, regulators, and residents (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12).  In fact, last month opposition stopped one company from pursuing development in five states including Iowa.  More recently, the Sioux City Council decided to take action to prevent other development in or near its community.

From Sioux City Journal:

SIOUX CITY — The Sioux City Council voted Monday to approve a resolution opposing the construction and operation of CO2 pipelines in or near the city.

The vote was 4 to 0 in favor of the resolution. Mayor Pro Tem Dan Moore abstained.
