a picture of an ad against fracking, pipelines, and LNG export
in the New York Times 9 July 2015
by Yoko Ono, Gasland, Food and Water Watch, and many other groups.
sign onto that letter here.
Everything it says applies as much to Alabama, Georgia, and Florida
and the Williams-Spectra-FPL Transco-Sabal Trail-FSC fracked methane pipeline chain as it does to New York and Williams’ “Constitution Pipeline”.
Here are a few excerpts:
By now the whole world knows that Fracking is bad for your health!
It is bad for communities and it is bad for the climate. That is why
I am so glad that New York State and Governor Andrew Cuomo banned
But now we are facing the gas industry who are still trying to Frack
New York. The fracked gas industry wants to build a pipeline that
would cut across New York state like a scar that never heals. It
goes by the ridiculous and Orwellian name “The Constitution
Pipeline”. How dare they!
We cannot allow another poisonous plan for our beautiful state that
we all love.
We must stop fracking, which means we must not transport fracked gas
across our state where it is headed for foreign export markets. The
danger to our homes, is also Continue reading Stopping fracking means stopping pipelines: Yoko Ono et al. in the New York Times

Why: Spectra Energy,
which had compressor station leaks in Maine last month and
in Pennsylvania last year, plus multiple fines by Pipeline
Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) for
corrosion and leaks, and a record $15 million EPA fine for
PCB contamination, proposes a hundred-foot-wide gash through
our lands for their huge 36 inch Sabal Trail gas
pipeline from Alabama through Georgia to feed Florida Power
and Light (FPL) and Duke Energy for no benefit to local
citizens and rate hikes for FPL customers. A one-time
payment is not enough Continue reading Question the Sabal Trail pipeline in Osceola County 2014-02-10
If Spectra or FPL wants you to sign anything or you have already,
you can refuse or rescind permission.
Here are sample landowner letters modeled on ones
Stop the Pipeline
against the Constitution Pipeline
that would run through New York State. These letters could work just as well against
the proposed Sabal Trail pipeline in Georgia, Alabama, and Florida,
or the Florida Southeast Connection in south Florida. (I am not a lawyer; please ask an attorney for legal advice.)
You can send a deny or rescind letter to the same address Sabal Trail (or FSC) used in any letters to you.
The address in these sample letters was on letters to Lowndes County from Sabal Trail
(and in the preliminary filing with FERC by FSC).
If you deny or rescind permission, please also
submit that as a comment to FERC.
No permission to Sabal Trail Transmission
No permission to Florida Southeast Connection
