Green Mayor refuses to give up fight against pipelineAs a partnership between companies based in Canada and Detroit begins the first steps in building a $2 billion natural gas pipeline, a northeast Ohio mayor is vowing to continue his city's fight to get the pipeline moved away from his community of 25,000 residents, "as long as there is hope."

"I'm not opposing oil and gas," Green Mayor Gerard Neugebauer told The Associated Press this week. "What I'm saying is that you should not go through populated areas when you put in a pipeline."

The partnership between Calgary-based Enbridge and Detroit's DTE Energy has received all the federal approvals it needs to build the 255-mile-long NEXUS pipeline, which will be capable of transporting 1.5 billion cubic feet of gas per day from the shale fields of Appalachia across northern Ohio and into Michigan and Canada. A little more than 200 miles (321.85 kilometers) of the pipeline will be in Ohio with nearly 8 miles (12.87 kilometers) in Green.
