SpectraBusters seeks new Allies and Board members

Especially since the Army Corps issued its permit for Sabal Trail last summer, Allies Florida is swarming against that fossil fuel invader like an ant bed stirred by a 600-mile-long pipeline stick. That’s great! However, there’s a lot of duplication of effort. And Florida is not the only place Spectra Energy is gouging its pipes: Georgia and Alabama, too, with implications far beyond.

The oldest name in Sabal Trail opposition, SpectraBusters, invites applications for two things: Continue reading SpectraBusters seeks new Allies and Board members

Facebook event: Due to local opposition to an unnecessary fracked methane pipeline, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) made Sabal Trail (FPL and Spectra Energy) produce four new route alternatives, and FERC set a deadline of November 15th for comments on them.

Here’s how to send your ecomments to FERC before then: Continue reading Ecomment to FERC by Nov 15th

Help stop pipelines: donate to SpectraBusters today

You can donate to SpectraBusters to help stop the unnecessary, environmentally damaging, and hazardous Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline, and its siblings Transco Hillabee and FSC, too.

You can help pay for contacting landowners (so they’ll hear something more than pipeline company PR), for contacting the public with billboards (currently we’re aiming for I-75 southbound near Lake City), and other work, ranging from research possibly up to legal assistance. Donate online today!

And don’t forget to send an ecomment to FERC.

Welcome to Spectrabusters

Welcome to Spectrabusters!

This site is a gathering place for those opposed to the natural gas pipeline proposed by Sabal Trail Transmissions LLC, which might run from Alabama to central Florida through Southwest Georgia. Sabal Trail is a joint venture of Spectra Energy and NextEra Energy, the parent company of Florida Power and Light (FPL). This pipeline would feed an FPL power plant in Florida for no benefit to citizens of Alabama or Georgia, while tearing a 100 foot wide right of way through all three states. There’s no excuse for another natural gas pipeline when solar power is cheaper and brings jobs and energy.

Citizens and land owners in multiple counties and states are working together to stop this unnecessary pipeline.
