  • Pipeline expert Paul Blackburn gives an overview of this unproven “carbon capture” technology, and the unsound economics and safety and health risks from these proposed carbon pipelines.

  • Attorney Brian Jorde with Omaha’s Domina Law Group, gave a presentation on landowners’ rights with respect to eminent domain, and spoke to the advantages of forming a legal “co-op” with other landowners who oppose their land being taken by eminent domain for these projects — the Nebraska Easement Action Team (NEAT).

  • Jane Kleeb, founder of Bold, the lead group that worked to build an alliance of farmers, ranchers and Tribal Nations to stop the Keystone XL pipeline from using eminent domain. The virtual meeting included a Q&A where landowners submitted questions via text message, email, or typed on Zoom that were answered by the panelists.
