SpectraBusters allies were just called out by fossil fuel industry publication OilPrice,
and by notorious financial blog Zerohedge,
as reasons why Sabal Trail may lose.
Irina Slav, OilPrice, 31 March 2016, Gas Pipeline Uses 160 Eminent Domain Suits To Get Property In 3 States, picked up by “Tyler Durden”, Zerohedge.com, 1 April 2016,
Eminent domain is a tough pill to swallow for Americans who take their property rights very seriously, and the aggressive moves by Sabal Trail to seize property for a natural gas pipeline running through three southern states is turning into a drama of immense proportions.
The rest is the best story I’ve seen about Continue reading SpectraBusters Allies cited as why Sabal Trail may fail
The financial press amusingly tries to spin Kinder Morgan’s
suspension yesterday of its Palmetto petroleum products pipeline as a positive.
Meanwhile, Sabal Trail still needs stopping even after
the historic win in the Georgia legislature,
and remember KMI is in bed with Sabal Trail on
on the Jacksonville Expansion Project (JEP) from Suwannee County, FL to Jacksonville,
FERC Docket No. CP15-144.

Thanks to the fine folks in Dougherty County, here’s
a handy table of all the Georgia state representatives
and senators along Sabal Trail’s proposed pipeline path in Georgia.
Please use this table before August 7th to ask your state legislators to oppose
Sabal Trail’s requested air quality permit from GA-EPD for the
proposed Albany compressor station.
And you can use it right now to contact your legislators
helping Rep. Darrel Bush Ealum oppose that pipeline.

Pipeline project fuels anger in Georgia,
Their proposal comes as pipeline projects — and controversy
surrounding them — pop up across Georgia. A 157-mile Sabal
Trail Pipeline that would cross nine southwest Georgia counties has
sparked outrage in Albany and Valdosta. And Atlanta Gas Light wants
to begin pumping gas from Coweta County
to Dalton by 2017.
But Kinder Morgan’s proposal has struck a throbbing nerve, in part
because of the length of the proposed pipeline — the 320-mile
route stretches by Augusta, Savannah and Jacksonville — and in
part because of the threat of eminent domain hanging over the
“Where do we draw the line? There are no reset buttons,”
Troy Davis, a local landowner, said at one of the town hall meetings
that Kinder Morgan called to calm fears about the project. “It
will be a Kroger, a CVS, a Burger King that comes to this community
and says, ‘Hey, we have a necessity for this.’ ”
That’s why the real solution is for the Georgia legislature
to revoke eminent domain for private companies.
But the legislature doesn’t meet until January,
and we need to stop these pipelines before then.
