What you can do to stop the Sabal “Sinkhole” Trail fracked methane boondoggle:
- Go to events.
- Report potential violations.
- Second this invitation from WWALS: WWALS invites Army Corps of Engineers to inspect and investigate Sabal Trail.
- And this more specific invitation from Georgia Congressman Sanford Bishop (GA-02): Sanford Bishop GA-02 requests Supplementary Environmental Impact Statement for Sabal Trail from U.S. Army Corps of Engineers 2016-05-27
- Demand Austin Scott (GA-08) and Ted Yoho (FL-03) and other members of Congress require the Corps to do a SEIS.
- Take your money out of banks that back Sabal Trail, and ask others to do the same.
- Ask investors in Spectra Energy such as Virginia 529, the largest U.S. college savings fund, and also the largest mutual fund investor in Spectra Energy, to divest from those stranded assets. Here’s VA529’s response to a request from WWALS.
- Remind your state legislators that the Georgia House in March 2016 voted 128 to 34 to deny river-drilling easements for Sabal Trail. It turns out the legislature doesn’t legally have to confirm decisions of the Georgia Land Commission, so Sabal Trail sued in county Superior Courts and got the easements anyway, but the point was made: water and property rights are not partisan issues; they are winning issues.
- Ask the Georgia legislature to pass a resolution demanding Congress reform the rogue agency FERC, as requested in the Georgia Water Coalition Dirty Dozen 2016.
- Here is a petition for that: Protect Private Property Rights and Water from Gas Pipelines.
- The resolution is in the Georgia House right now; ask your Georgia House member to pass it. GA HR 289: Recommend Congress remove eminent domain from Federal National Gas Act.
- Ask your Florida (or Alabama or other) state legislators to demand Congress reform the rogue agency FERC.
- Demand new appointees to the vacant 3 out of 5 FERC Commissioner seats are better than just-resigned Norman Bay, who bragged about pipeline and LNG export approvals.
- Contact Congress directly and demand FERC reform: WWALS and 182 Organizations from 35 States Call for Congressional Review of FERC 2016-09-21
- Ask your Senators not to confirm any FERC Commission nominations, thus shutting down any new interstate natural gas pipeline approvals.
