9. "pipelines always get built", wherever there is demand

Most people aren't aware of what we've built already.

Demand requires delivery, and you get far more complaints about the price of gas or heating oil, or a line at the gas station than one more pipeline. That's been the rule for some time. It would be nice to think that there will be a turning point, but I'm more inclined to think that it will be when people stop driving and stop consuming so much of the stuff, not when a single additional pipeline is opposed.
