Now streaming online: At What Cost? Pipelines, Pollution and Eminent Domain in the Rural South, by Mark Albertin. And yes, he’s happy for it to be shown elsewhere; just ask, and you can set up a local viewing like in Live Oak last night, or the previous premieres along the Georgia coast.
Most of the issues are the same for Spectra Energy’s invading Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline as for Kinder Morgan’s invading Palmetto petroleum products pipeline that is the subject of the movie. Thanks to Push Back the Pipeline for getting this movie made about Kinder Morgan’s proposed petroleum products pipeline from South Carolina across the Georgia coast to Jacksonville, Florida. Special thanks to Eileen, Lori, and Debra and the Woman’s Club of Live Oak for the movie showing last night, to WWALS Watershed Coalition and the Woman’s Club of Live Oak for hosting, and to Our Santa Fe River, and Gulf Restoration Network for helping promote it.
Don’t forget the hike to the Suwannee River Sabal Trail crossing 8:15 AM Thursday 28 February 2016 with Suwannee and Hamilton County Commissioners.
Spectra Energy of Houston, Texas wants to gouge Sabal Trail from Alabama through southwest Georgia to Orlando, connecting to more pipelines and a railroad through much of Florida. There’s no excuse for this pipeline boondoggle now that solar power is faster, cheaper, and far cleaner and safer than any other power source, especially for the Sunshine State.
You can help fight this fossil fuel profiteering by joining WWALS Watershed Coalition or one of the many other organizations opposing this pipeline boondoggle and fighting for our rivers, springs, and aquifer, and for a sunny future for the southeast. You can also write to the Army Corps of Engineers, petition your elected officials, or other actions listed in this web page.
No pipelines! Let the sun rise.
