The judges cited Dr. Seuss' The Lorax: "We trust the United States Forest Service to 'speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.'"

There are risks with poorly maintained natural gas distribution systems, but they have a better record than oil pipelines, which have a better record than rail car transport. They must be maintained. When PG&E failed to do so, they blew up a neighborhood.
