NOTABLE QUOTE(S):

Kate DeAngelis, Friends of the Earth—

“In supporting liquefied natural gas exports, President Obama is treating climate change like a game of peak-a-boo, opening his eyes to the harmful impacts of carbon but closing them to the devastating disruption potential of methane. Allowing more LNG exports completely counteracts President Obama’s expressed commitment to reduce emissions and protect the public health.”

Downeast LNG's revised website, The Project > Downeast LNG Project Overview (PDF; 34KB), 2014 June —

"Visual Issues

"The site is uniquely suited to accommodate the necessary structures with minimal visual impact from either Route 1 in Maine or from St. Andrews.…

"…The most visible aspect of the project will be the ship itself, which will be present only when it is in port and at a distance of more than 2 miles from St. Andrews…." [Bold, underlined emphasis added.]

Webmaster's comment: The 30-ft-tall sheet metal barrier that DeLNG proposes to erect along more than ½ mile of highway US-1, abutting a state-designated scenic area (Mill Cove), and the 4,000-foot-long trestle and pier that would cut across the mouth of scenic Mill Cove must not "count" in Dean Girdis's mind as visual impact.

And, Girdis says that the ship wouldn't be visible when it isn't in port! Brilliant!

Don't be surprised if Girdis's embarrassment results in his changing the text. But, never fear! SPB has preserved it for posterity! [See archived DeLNG's 2014 June edition of "Downeast LNG Project Overview" (PDF; 34KB), with SPB highlighting & comments.]

    • FERC Office of Energy Projects

      This interagency meeting was held at the Maine Department of Environmental Protection office in Bangor, Maine. The purpose was to inform various federal and state agencies of Downeast LNG's Export Project (PF14-19).

      State agencies present were:

      • Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP);
      • Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (DIFW); and
      • Maine Department of Marine Resources (DMR)

      Federal agencies present were:

      • Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) — including Shannon Crosley, FERC's Downeast LNG project manager who did not appear (claiming "sickness") at the Downeast Open House in Robbinston later that same day. (We are betting that Ms. Crosley's "sickness" was her method of avoiding facing a public well aware of her production of the previous unprofessional, flawed, incomplete, and unethical FERC Downeast LNG Final Environmental Impact Statement);
      • Tetra Tech (FERC's contractor re Downeast LNG);
      • US Army Corps of Engineers (COE);
      • US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS);
      • US Coast Guard (USCG);
      • US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA);
      • US Department of Transportation (USDOT); and
      • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries

      And, naturally, Downeast LNG was present (Dean Girdis and Rob Wyatt).
