A protest of carbon pipelines in Iowa.

This interview originally aired on In the Moment on SDPB Radio.

In the Moment talks landowners and lawsuits. We dive into whether a carbon pipeline can be true public use and how eminent domain may change the face of farming in certain parts of South Dakota.

Summit Carbon Solutions is looking to use eminent domain in part to build a carbon capture pipeline through the northeast part of the state.

That impacts Suzanne Smith, a county commissioner at Spink County, Ed Fischbach, a landowner from Spink County, and Craig Schaunaman, a landowner in Brown County.

They joined the show for a discussion on landowner rights and the potential impacts of the pipeline.
