Dear Mr. President,
Happy President’s Day and thank you for working hard for our children’s future: I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the defining issue on which future generations will judge us. We need you to do all you can to keep fossil fuels in the ground. “Natural” gas is a dirty fossil fuel, not a bridge fuel to a green energy future, yet we are threatened with the prospect of huge new pipelines that would last for decades, delivering gas for export and endangering our hometowns and our climate.
FERC has not turned down a pipeline application since 1986 and is now reviewing the proposed NED (Northeast Energy Direct) pipeline. We are very concerned: FERC does not appear to be an agency that protects Americans; instead it steadfastly promotes the fossil fuel industry at the expense of our lands and our future. MA Attorney General Maura Healy’s independent report proves that we do not need the proposed NED pipeline, yet now all that stands between us and the pipeline is FERC.
If FERC is corrupt, we need that corrected and look to you for help. Please urge the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to audit FERC as soon as possible. Thank you for your attention in this urgent matter.
