Much more in a blog post a day.
Issues: get involved in the advocacy of WWALS, for solar power and rights to clean water, air, and land. We oppose trash, sewage spills, new mines (titanium or phosphate) and coal ash, fracking, new pipelines, and liquid natural gas (LNG) export, new toll roads, as well as corporate agriculture using too much water, too much fertilizer, and too many pesticides.
You can comment or intervene on the Rulemaking on small inland Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) facilities that WWALS and six co-signers got started with FERC, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. We don’t need more methane leaks and we don’t need highly compressed explosive LNG trucks rolling down I-75 and I-10 with no environmental oversight and no safety plans.
