Fracking Industry, Sabal Trail pipeline, LNG Export To Other Countries With No need or Necessity for the Citizens of our Florida as well as Georgia and Alabama. If you ever questioned the plan to export fracked gas then this should quell those misconceptions!
Heads up Jacksonville and the citizens of the state of Florida! The first major LNG processing of fracked natural gas, transportation via truck and train — moving bombs as experienced in other states that have been invaded by the fracked gas export/transport pipelines through populated areas — has been given the Green Light.
The DOE has permitted Eagle LNG with a Continue reading JACKSONVILLE FLA: DOE GRANTS LONG-TERM, MULTI-CONTRACT ORDER TO EXPORT & PROCESS LNG BY TRAIN TRUCK OR SEA VESSEL FROM, OR IN ISO CONTAINERS LOADED FROM EAGLE LNG’s FACILITY AT ST JOHN’S RIVER, TO FTA NATIONS
Below you will find an excerpt of Strom, Inc. DOE Application # 15-78-LNG submitted May 2015, section V, describing the public interests of processing LNG, transporting via train and/or truck 90 miles along the pristine west coast of Florida for exporting to other, countries this includes non-FTA countries. Are these people not aware of Solar Energy and other clean energy alternatives which would well serve the countries they propose to export greenhouse emitting, water destructive and air polluting fracked gas to? You know they are. But DOE/FE policy gives LNG facilities the right to negotiate their own trade agreements and determine the environmental effects in the name of promoting competition in the dying, subsidized fossil fuel industry. As for the 100’s of jobs Strom says will be created in this application, if the Florida government and utility monopoly were removed (as it is in all but 4 states), via solar choice, there would be 1000’s of jobs created in the solar industry alone!
It is obvious that this endeavor is “all about the money” for an industry that has seen it’s time and needs to fold or adapt. As well as the invested politicians ‘on the dole’. The fracking industry is operating in debt – in the ‘red’ – and guess who will be left with the losses economically, environmentally and socially.
Strom’s DOE application for their multiple operations are still open for comments via DOE online here:
