Comment to FERC for the Global Frackdown

Send your ecomment to FERC today or tomorrow for the Oct 11th Global Frackdown event by Food & Water Watch. Easiest way is to use FERC’s ecomment system: here’s how to do that. Or follow this link for FERC postal address, telephone number, and email address.

And you can call your newspaper or radio or TV station and recommend they publish the SpectraBusters op-ed, It don’t pass the smell test: FPL’s extra natural gas pipeline.

FPL wants federal eminent domain to gouge a hundred-foot right of way for a yard-wide fracked methane pipeline through Alabama, Georgia, and Florida, claiming Florida needs new power. That don’t pass the smell test.

Or encourage reporters to write a story about it. Or write your own letter to the editor or op-ed or rant and rave or call in to your local radio station.

You can also add your name to FWW’s petition to global leaders. See also European Day of Action against TTIP, CETA & TiSA. All those secretly-negotiated “free trade” agreements would contribute to LNG exports such as from the three already-authorized LNG export operations at the end of the Transco -> Sabal Trail -> FSC pipeline chain. LNG exports are no excuse for eminent domain to take local lands for utility and fossil fuel company profit; see the SpectraBusters op-ed.

Most importantly, send your comment to FERC. Everybody who’s signed up with FERC’s ecomment system for that docket will see it, so you will be encouraging many opponents of the unnecessary Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline or its triplets Transco and FSC. Remember to use one or more of FERC Docket numbers:

  • PF14-1 for Sabal Trail Transmission in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida by NextEra Energy (FPL’s parent company) and Spectra Energy of Houston, TX
  • PF14-6 for Hillabee Expansion Project in Alabama by Williams Transco,
  • or PF14-2 for Florida Southeast Connection in Florida by FPL.

And help get that SpectraBusters op-ed printed.

Happy Frackdown!
