If you’re a Houston fossil fuel company and you can’t get FERC approval fast enough, try FE, or MARAD!
If that doesn’t work, ship it by land through Canada or Mexico!
Local property rights, they laugh at those! Rio Grande, Suwannee River, or Hudson River: just minor obstacles to greed!
If the people are tired of profit being more important than their land, water, air, or safety, it’s time to stop this fossil fuel shell game.

How big is the LNG export gold rush?
Here are maps of dozens of approved, proposed, and potential LNG export terminals,
one of them even including Carib’s FE-authorized Martin County LNG export facility that FERC never seems to remember and Sabal Trail never talks about.
Update 2015-02-23: Now with the rest of the maps.
In addition to the
approved LNG import and export terminals,
there are more on this
FERC map of Proposed North American LNG Export Terminals,
including ones in Lake Charles (2 and 7), Sabine Pass (6), Plaquemines Parish (8 and 11), and Cameron Parish (13) Louisiana,
Lavaca Bay (4) and Sabine Pass (9), Texas,
Elba Island (5), Georgia, and Jacksonvile (14), Florida,
as well as Coos Bay (1) and Astoria (3), Oregon,
plus two in Kitimat (15 and 17) and one on Douglas Island (16), British Columbia.
One of those proposed BC LNG export terminals is where
Spectra Energy proposes to build not one but two pipelines.
And even that ain’t all. Continue reading LNG export approved and proposed →
Nova Scotia is banning fracking. Onshore, but not offshore,
and not pipelines.
But at least the Nova Scotia government listened to environmentalists,
the grassroots, and rural people about that much.
Will our local and state governments listen about the Sabal Trail
fracked methane pipeline?

A Spectra is haunting New England and the Canadian Maritimes,
as well as the U.S. southeast,
seeking every market
for its fracked methane pipelines,
sliming lands along the way.
Local media are starting to pay attention to the big picture,
not just the local hauntings, such as
Sabal Trail Transmission 36-inch 100-foot right of way
gash through the southeast.
Spectra didn’t say, but those markets could include LNG export from
Excelerate Energy’s Northeast Gateway in Massachusetts Bay
or the proposed
Goldboro LNG export terminal in Nova Scotia.
If LNG export happens, the price of “natural” gas in the U.S. and Canada
will go up.
