Monday Action for 8/15/16: Senators, demand that FERC use unbiased data when determining whether to build new pipelines.
Please note: Calls and letters count more. So today, grab a postcard or reach for the phone: Maybe make it personal, mention ages of children or impact of climate change where you live.
Dear Senators Markey and Warren,
I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the gravest threat facing us all and future generations depend on us to halt it. We need to source 100% of our energy from clean, renewable sources like solar and wind. We need to fix gas leaks, not build more pipelines and we need a carbon tax ASAP.
Thank you for continuing to seek more detailed information on how FERC chose NRG to do the environmental review of the Atlantic Bridge pipeline. With the AIM pipeline passing by a nuclear power plant and the Atlantic Bridge passing a working quarry, too much is at stake to rely on a potentially tainted analysis for approval of the pipeline.
Therefore, I urge you to demand that FERC issue a Stop Work Order until outstanding questions about NRG’s conflicts of interest are resolved, and another, genuinely independent EIS, or analysis, has been completed.
Thank you for bringing your considerable influence to be our climate champions. The children and I thank you.
