On this final day to plead my/our case, it is time for the FERC to
look at the bigger picture and stop caving to the short term fixes.
We are in trouble, and you can help by voting to DENY THE SABAL
TRAIL METHANE PIPELINE! Leave the gas in the ground…..where it’s
already conveniently stored!
EVERY DAY we wake to an invitation from the sun! In fact, the planet
itself runs on solar, and most European countries already understand
this. Even China just made a huge commitment to solar. Contrary to

From the standpoint of transparency, there is none! I have asked Continue reading Listen to the people you are supposed to protect –Laura Dailey to FERC

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?
European leaders and the U.S. president are aware of opposition
to fracking, even in Europe.

U.S. President Barack Obama told the European Union on Wednesday it
cannot rely on the United States alone to reduce its dependency on
Russian energy, as relations with Moscow chill over its seizure of
Crimea from Ukraine.
There is some bad news:
