Filed with FERC yesterday:
The proposed natural gas pipeline by Sabal Trails/Spectra Energy is not in the interest of United States citizens much less the states that it crosses—Alabama, Georgia and Florida. Natural gas and fossil fuel companies are trying to force profits out of a dying industry at the expense of the communities and people’s health and livelihoods in their wake. Fossil fuels are dirty and dangerous sources of energy that FERC should not approve new projects for. We need to conserve our land and water for all people, instead of destroying them for money and profits that cannot replace diminished life.
I ask that docket # PF14-1 not be approved. Please protect the rights of the landowners affected by this pipeline route. Nobody should be forced to have a pipeline as large as 36″ with an explosion radius of 600′ on their land. There are as many as 80 explosions a year from natural gas pipelines causing injury and death to those unfortunate enough to be in the path of one. Natural gas is not a safe alternative fuel as the industry tries to paint the picture. We need focus on renewable energies that are safe for humans and the environment. Exploitation of the environment for corporate profits needs to become a thing of the past!
