Many eyes watching pipeline construction can catch shoddy work,
and even FDEP will step in to deal with the most egregious violations,
as Spectra and Rockford for FPL rush to try to finish by May 2017.
Shannon Larsen’s complaint to Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP)
at least briefly shut down destruction by Florida Southeast Connection (FSC)
at Ft Drum Creek, just south of Ft. Drum, Florida.
On the telephone just now she told me work had indeed been halted.
Right now Shannon is in Okeechobee City starting
a rally to stop pipelines across Florida

Does it seem like FPL is the sucker in these fossil fuel deals by its parent NextEra?
While the people of Florida fall far behind even New Jersey and Massachusetts in deploying solar power in the much more populous Sunshine State?
You can call your local, state, and federal officials and ask them to stop the fossil fuel boondoggles and get on with solar power.
As we’ve seen,
NextEra is unloading its Oklahoma fracking operation onto FPL.
“Positive” effects of fracking in Oklahoma have included
Meanwhile, NextEra subsidiary Nextera Energy Resources
solar operations in California, Nevada, New Mexico, and even
but not in Florida.
NextEra’s Yieldco NextEra Energy Partners (NEP) is even Continue reading NextEra invests in solar while its subsidiary FPL promotes fracked methane Sabal Trail
FPL doubled down on a need
because it claims fracked methane is “clean”,
FERC filing of 21 April 2014.
FPL says it is
“a strong supporter of solar power”
even though it
didn’t increase its solar capacity from 2010 to 2013
because of the lame baseload capacity excuse.
FPL says it knows nothing about
Export of Gas, even though
Floridian LNG, located next to FPL’s Martin County “Clean Energy” Center right at the end of the Transco-Sabal-FSC pipeline,
was approved for LNG export by the U.S. DoE Office Fossil Energy (FE)
14 November 2013,
Crowley Maritime’s Carib Energy
was approved for export from Florida by FE 27 July 2011.
And FPL says its ratepayers are not paying the costs
of the pipeline, even though FPL VP of development and external affairs Pam Rauch
argued in pring 29 July 2012 for a “Clean Energy” (fracked methane) Center at Cape Canaveral
that was one of several mentioned
by the Tampa Times 24 October 2014
as a reason for a new pipeline,
and that same Pam Rauch
filed PF14-2 with FERC for the Florida Southeast Connection (FSC) pipeline that connects from Sabal Trail to FPL’s
“Clean Energy” Center in Martin County, next to Floridian LNG.
FPL doesn’t seem to know what’s going on next to it,
and maybe not what its own employees are doing.
I hope EPA doesn’t consider
the questions it filed with FERC the same day
answered by this weak tea from FPL.
