Rush Hour Rally at FPL HQ to Stop Sabal Trail Pipeline 2016-10-14

Taking it to the source: the headquarters of FPL, whose ratepayers are on the hook for $3 billion for the Transco → Sabal Trail → FSC fracked methane pipeline boondoggle through Alabama, Georgia, and Florida, Sierra Club and Indian Riverkeeper are holding a Rush Hour Rally this Friday, October 14th 2016 in Juno Beach, Florida; see press release for details. If you can’t get there, there are other events all over Florida and beyond. Remember, FPL admits no need for new electricity until 2024, so there’s no more excuse for Sabal Trail.

At FPL HQ, Juno Beach, FL

The facebook page Protect Florida Against Sabal Trail attempts to keep track of upcoming rallies against Sabal Trail or its ugly stepsisters, which are popping up practically daily. Here are some events scheduled starting this weekend:

While I admit the Juno Beach rally was my idea, the best part is others have run with it. WWALS has been fighting this thing since 2013 and promoting solar power even before that.

Appended is the Sierra Club and Indian Riverkeeper press release for the Rush Hour Rally at FPL HQ in Juno Beach this Friday.


You can join this fun and work by becoming a WWALS member today!

Rush Hour Rally at FPL Headquarters to Stop Sabal Trail Pipeline

When: Friday, October 14, 2016
3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
4 p.m. message delivery to FPL

Where: FPL Headquarters, 700 Universe Blvd., Juno Beach, FL 33408

Who: Anti-pipeline and anti-fracking activists and proponents of solar power from North, Central and South Florida.

What: A protest of FPL’s natural gas transmission pipeline that is set to cut its way through Florida’s springs heartland and wetlands on its way to FPL’s Indiantown (Martin County) Power Plant. Florida could be a leader in creating good paying solar jobs, but instead FPL wants to build more dirty natural gas infrastructure.

Why: If built, the fracked gas pipeline would extend through Florida, Alabama and Georgia over an area that provides drinking water to approximately 10 million people. 515 miles of the pipeline is owned by Spectra Energy, Duke Energy and FPL (NextEra); an additional 126 miles is owned entirely by FPL. Ratepayers refuse to foot the bill for the state’s dependence on fossil fuels.
