Disaster looms when ruthless industrial developers invade a peaceful Maine seaside village. The Mermaid Queen is injured and powerless against this threat to her realm's natural beauty and traditional way of life. Now only the Queen's Elves and her faithful Sprite Robbinston Goodfellow can save Passamaquoddy Bay.

Downeast LNG
Abeyance Was Supposedly to End
on this date.

FERC BEAT THE DEADLINE:
FERC DISMISSED DOWNEAST LNG
FROM PERMITTING
ON 2016 AUGUST 17

This was the 3rd Permitting Abeyance since 2015 Oct 30.

Permitting abeyance would have lasted nearly one full year!

FERC has finally put long-suffering
Downeast LNG out of its misery.

NOTABLE QUOTE(S):

Hawaii Governor David Ige

“Any time and money spent on LNG is time and money not spent on renewable energy.”

Utility seeks OK to burn natural gas, Hawaii Tribune-Herald, 2016 May 20.


Ashleigh Giffen, First Nations member

“We don’t have another earth, and I think it is time we save this one.”

May urges people not to abandon LNG fight, The Squamish Chief, 2016 May 14.


Clifford Goudey, marine engineer and friend of Save Passamaquoddy Bay —

“Even in the US, the vast majority of new electrical power generation has been wind or solar because they are simply cheaper. Similar patterns in other countries will keep the value of NG lower than is needed for profitable export by ship. While it is a shame to see good money being wasted on these new export terminals, this is the fate of those still mired in the fossil-fuel age.” [Bold emphasis added.]
