Augusta County has many signs against a proposed natural gas pipeline through our area.
How will it benefit us, the critics say.
President Trump provided the answer in Poland this week.
More energy exported from the United States helps other countries in Eastern Europe that now depend on Russian oil and gas.
The more oil and gas we produce, the more we have available to sell to other countries in the export market.
Putin and Russia lose their strangehold on Eastern Europe.
The rest of Europe gets a boost also.
What's the fastest way to get natural gas to Europe?
Through the port at Hampton Roads.
We already have big piles of coal at the water's edge going that way.
A plant to process natural gas - arriving from West Virginia via Augusta County - would help Eastern Europe and hurt Russia.
