If you’re a Houston fossil fuel company and you can’t get FERC approval fast enough, try FE, or MARAD!
If that doesn’t work, ship it by land through Canada or Mexico!
Local property rights, they laugh at those! Rio Grande, Suwannee River, or Hudson River: just minor obstacles to greed!
If the people are tired of profit being more important than their land, water, air, or safety, it’s time to stop this fossil fuel shell game.
MARAD Continue reading The LNG export shell game: FERC, FE, MARAD, or NEB? →
People talk about LNG exports to China through the
Transco – Sabal Trail – Florida Southeast Connection
pipeline, even though
FPL says it knows nothing about exports through that
Southeast Market Pipelines Project (SMPP), and FERC also seems to know nothing.
If that fracked gas really can go to China, where’s
FERC’s rationale for federal eminent domain,
which depends on Florida needing the gas?
FPL’s own 10-Year Site Plan doesn’t support a need for the gas,
EPA doesn’t buy what it’s seen as rationalizations for that
can the gas go to China?
FERC has admitted in more than one Scoping Meeting that it’s not the
pipeline company that has to get export authorization: it’s the end user.
And FPL is not the only end user and FERC is not the only export-authorizing agency. Continue reading Can Sabal Trail fracked methane go to China? →
Yet another LNG export scheme linked with the
Southeast Market Pipelines Project,
in addition to
at least two more.
Why should anybody give up their land for export profit for a few companies
An undersea pipeline originally for import to Florida,
now being promoted for LNG export because of U.S. surplus methane
from fracking, already approved by the U.S. a decade ago,
only waiting for approval by the Bahamas, which is being
pressured by an international bank to do so.
It would run from FPL’s Port Everglades “Clean Energy Center”
in Broward County, a location linked since it was announced
with FPL’s Florida Southeast Connection, which would get its
gas from the Sabal Trail and Transco pipelines, starting with
fracking in Pennsylvania and Texas.

Maybe no pipeline from Palm Beach to the Bahamas,
but that wasn’t the only Bahamas methane pipeline project, and they haven’t all been dropped.
