Rally to Stop Fracked Gas Exports: Cove Point & Beyond
July 13, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
For far too long, President Obama has allowed the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to put the interests of the oil and gas industry above our health, safety and climate. FERC has rubber-stamped project after project to expand fracking here and export fracked gas overseas.
On Sunday, July 13th, we say enough is enough. We’ll come together by the thousands in downtown Washinton, D.C. to call for a change of course — at a critical time.
This summer, FERC will be making up its mind on one of the most egregious examples of the rush to export harmful fossil fuels: Dominion Resources’ proposal to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Cove Point, Maryland. This project would expand fracking in the Marcellus Shale region, put Cove Point and other local communities in danger and raise gas prices in the U.S.
