Allies

All these organizations are fighting this or another pipeline or fracking, and many have agreed to be listed “In Conjunction with” on at least one SpectraBusters press release. While SpectraBusters has many allies, all SpectraBusters members are individuals, not organizations.

20 thoughts on “Allies

  1. There are at least three “allies” who represent themselves falsely or rather who represent most facts falsely. They are the NY Climate Action Group,Occupy the Pipeline and the Sane Energy Project. All three of these groups have gotten in the way of the people on the ground effected by the Rockaway Pipeline project and the people who did anything at all against the project. All three have spread enormous amounts of misinformation on the Rockaway Pipeline Project and also now an LNG import project called Port Ambrose proposed for offshore of NYC/Long Island and this has been ongoing for between a year and half and two years now. They have been asked repeatedly to stop pretending they represent any interest beside their own and to stop spreading what is clearly misinformation. They have gotten in the way of local concerns. They actively surpressed information on the Rockaway project, their preference instead to create myths about it instead, and then followed that up with doing the same with the Port Ambrose LNG import project . These are fraudulent groups with dubious “leaders”. I wouldn’t take advice from them if I were you unless it is advice on sabotage.

      1. Evidence of allegations? Are you joking?

        The pre-file docket and the certificate docket on the rockaway project (CP13-36) are evidence enough. During pre-file, antifracking activists copied form letters written by Sane Energy (likely Clare Donahue) which not only didn’t represent issues that anyone locally was concerned about but which didn’t appear to even accurately portray where the project being considered by FERC was going to be built.

        There is evidence all over the place of the nonsense these people have been slinging as they film and document themselves constantly. The evidence can be found via social networking sites, videos and also in the news.

        http://unitedforaction.org/2013/07/06/stop-the-lng-liberty-port-ambrose-project/ That is a notice by United for Action, possible via Edie Kantrowitz who also signs letters and such for the Coalition Against the Rockaway Pipeline sending out notice about what they call an LNG export project.

        The actual application and docket on Port Ambrose an LNG import project is quite long and detailed. http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=USCG-2013-0363

        Evidence? There websites are evidence. Their facebook pages are evidence. Many of the groups don’t have “leaders” listed except apparently when they sign on letters. They are mostly the same group of people and on the ground people know this. Because we have met them.

        1. Yes, evidence is what allegations require.
          You’ve supplied one example of someone calling Port Ambrose export without qualification. That’s it? Everything else I see is careful to express concern about possible LNG export from Port Ambrose.
