Sen. Angus King
Implies Opposition
to
Downeast LNG Export Proposal

Sen. King is the only Maine federal legislator to indicate, even by implication, opposition to any LNG terminal activity in Passamaquoddy Bay.

Sen. Collins supports LNG terminals in the state.

Rep. Michaud has repeatedly refused to provide his opinion when we've asked on numerous occasions.

NOTABLE QUOTE(S):

Food & Water Watch —

"The United States can transition off of fossil fuels, but it will require remaking the U.S. energy system around proven clean energy solutions: conservation, efficiency and renewables. Such a remaking would underpin broad- based and sustained economic growth, circumvent the environmental and public health costs of extracting and burning fossil fuels and usher in an era of true U.S. energy security, independence and resilience."

PDF fileUS Energy Insecurity: Why Fracking for Oil and Natural Gas Is a False Solution , 2012 November; p 2 (PDF; 1.8MB).


Maya von Rossum, Delaware Riverkeeper —

"FERC has been allowing illegal segmentation by pipeline companies for years, it has ignored the pleas of the public for equity and for honest review of impacts, and as such FERC has been complicit with the pipeline companies in their ongoing efforts to avoid the rule of law and to ignore the devastating impacts they are having on our environment, impacts that will harm not just present, but also future generations."

"…This [Federal Court] decision is important and powerful for every pipeline, related infrastructure and LNG project to come…" [Bold emphasis added.]

    • Save Passamaquoddy BayFERC failed to advertise its Scoping Period and Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement to Canadian communities. Such ommission can be construed as FERC's prejudiced treatment in favor of Downeast LNG's proposal, in conflict with public stakeholder interests. FERC must correct its failure to advertise in Canada, must re-activate the Scoping Period, and must correct its errors and omissions.

      • Marine geotechnical studies are ongoing, hope to complete in January. Land-based sampling is
        completed but waiting for lab results. Further process design work is pending completion of
        geotechnical studies, and some environmental work (e.g. visual impact assessment) is pending
        further design work.

    • Save Passamaquoddy BayTurkey prohibits LNG transits through its Bosphorus Strait — the same as Canada's prohibition in Head Harbour Passage. Both countries provide innocent passage; however, LNG transits through those passages — engulfing civilians and civilian assets within US Government-defined Hazard Zones — would not be innocent, thus innocent passage does not apply.
