Fracking Industry, Sabal Trail pipeline, LNG Export To Other Countries With No need or Necessity for the Citizens of our Florida as well as Georgia and Alabama. If you ever questioned the plan to export fracked gas then this should quell those misconceptions!
Heads up Jacksonville and the citizens of the state of Florida! The first major LNG processing of fracked natural gas, transportation via truck and train — moving bombs as experienced in other states that have been invaded by the fracked gas export/transport pipelines through populated areas — has been given the Green Light.
The DOE has permitted Eagle LNG with a Continue reading JACKSONVILLE FLA: DOE GRANTS LONG-TERM, MULTI-CONTRACT ORDER TO EXPORT & PROCESS LNG BY TRAIN TRUCK OR SEA VESSEL FROM, OR IN ISO CONTAINERS LOADED FROM EAGLE LNG’s FACILITY AT ST JOHN’S RIVER, TO FTA NATIONS

Adding to their opposition to LNG export, the Sierra Club Board of Directors has adopted this new policy:
“Natural Gas: The Sierra Club opposes new electric generating

units. Consistent with the Board’s goal of eliminating all fossil

The pipeline companies are watching all the opposition.
And the opposition is shadowing all the pipeline companies.
Score one for the opposition!
Plus plenty of opportunities coming up for more concerted opposition
against any new fossil fuel tentacles through our countryside or under our rivers.

Marcellus Shale fracked methane through Atlantic Sunrise to Transco to Sabal Trail to TECO to Jaxport for LNG export?
And maybe an explanation for why Sempra Energy, like Spectra Energy,
donated to both GA Gov. Nathan Deal’s and AL Gov. Robert Bentley’s
Sempra apparently wants to export Marcellus Shale gas from Jacksonville,
and Sabal Trail is the proposed conduit for that through Alabama and Georgia
