Climate warning

Many worried EACOP could spell disastrous social and environmental impacts

An oil pipeline megaproject is planned to carve through East Africa despite major concerns about how it will impact the climate, local communities, and biodiversity.  The East Africa Crude Oil Export Pipeline (EACOP) is a planned pipeline that’s set to run for 1,443 kilometers (896 miles) between oilfields on the shores of Lake Albert in Uganda to Tanzania’s Port of Tanga on the Indian Ocean. Once up and running, it will be the world’s longest heated oil pipeline. https://www.iflscience.com/a-massive-oil-pipeline-threatens-to-carve-through-the-heart-of-africa-70574
