(Lamberton, MN) -- A proposed carbon dioxide pipeline is facing resistance from some rural Minnesota land owners.

Summit Carbon Solutions is developing the Midwest Carbon Express and is promising to pay farmers and landowners for easements.

The company is offering five-figure signing bonuses in some cases.

Opponents say the pipeline is a false solution to climate change that continues fossil fuel reliance.
