Cove Point LNG project means more fracking, more pollution, and more climate change. With this note of concern, the Food and Water Watch has created an online letter to be signed by supporters of this cause and sent to the federal agencies.
In an email message circulating the link to the letter, Emily Wurth Water Program Director, Food & Water Watch, wrote, “the federal government is dangerously close to approving the Cove Point export facility on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.”
Meanwhile, Reuters reported today that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has withdrawn its request for more time to review the Cove Point LNG project. According to the report, EPA says that it will provide its comments on 16th of this month instead of the previous request of 30-day review time.
