The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recently approved the construction of a natural gas pipeline through three southern states. Supporters of the pipeline focused on the economic benefits that pipeline construction would bring to communities, while those in opposition questioned the environmental justice and ecological impact of pipeline construction. This paper will explore the politics of the approval and construction process for the pipeline with a focus on the narratives of public and private actors in support of and in opposition to the pipeline. Through an analysis of narratives presented in the media, public hearings, and other sources, interested parties may learn more about how stakeholders highlighted issues related to economics, environmental justice, and conservation to advance their agenda.

This paper is a think piece which attempts to examine the complexities of holistic research in a brief space. I outline a theoretical positioning for environmental study based in assemblage thinking, a sometimes contentious (Hornborg 2017), but useful approach. I then demonstrate the kind of inquiry by utilizing this assemblage approach in order to explore and critique discursive-legal issues in US patent and PVPA certification legislation. The end-goal of the project is to begin exploring how assemblage thinking within environmental justice scholarship could imagine a more just ecologic future.
