Quotes

A LNG tanker: "FERC's decision to allow LNG exports from Cove Point is fundamentally flawed because the agency failed to consider the simple fact that exporting LNG will mean more drilling and fracking, and that means more climate pollution, more risk of contaminated groundwater, and more threats to the health of people who live near gas wells" says Deb Nardone, director of Sierra Club's Beyond Natural Gas campaign
...no matter how great the environmental and safety concerns," said Mike Tidwell, director of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, in a statement. "FERC refused to even require an environmental impact statement for this $3.8 billion facility right on the Bay. We intend to challenge this ruling all the way to court if necessary…we will continue to fight this project until it is stopped."
"We are pleased to receive this final approval that allows us to start constructing this important project that offers significant economic, environmental and geopolitical benefits" Dominion Energy President Diane Leopold said
Mike Tidwell, of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, which has strongly opposed the project, promised to fight the decision in court, "for the safety of Marylanders and for people across our region facing new fracking wells and pipelines."
