Senator Warren, FERC Should Protect Us

February 22, 2016

Today’s Monday Action: Senators, Investigate FERC!
Our senators must ask the GAO (Government Accountability Office) to investigate the federal agency currently reviewing the proposed NED pipeline application, FERC–or Federal Energy Resource Commission– which is behaving like a captured agency beholden to the fossil fuel industry, not the common good.
Dear Senator,

I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the defining issue on which future generations will judge us. We therefore need you to protect us from new fossil fuel infrastructure including the proposed NED (Northeast Energy Direct) “natural” gas pipeline. Gas is not a bridge fuel. It is a bridge to nowhere.
Thank you, Senator Warren for speaking out publicly in Springfield, MA on Feb. 1 about FERC’s responsibility as an arm of the federal government to listen to the people. FERC should protect our interests rather than the interests of the richest and the most powerful. You were so right to say: “In no place is that distinction clearer than it is with the pipeline”We heard you when you said: “We stopped them the first time, and we’re gonna make sure that next time around they hear all of our voices, right here in western Massachusetts,” When a member of the audience shouted “Investigate FERC!” You responded, “I hear you”.

Thank you for hearing us: We need you to ask the GAO to investigate FERC, which is behaving like a captured agency. FERC, currently reviewing NED, has not turned down a pipeline since 1986 and we cannot afford the petty corruption of a handful of people to pollute our Commonwealth for untold generations to come.

Thank you for fighting fiercely for the children’s future. We need you to do all you can to Stop NED.
