From the Delaware Riverkeeper -- Stop Shale Gas Exports!

Export Shale Gas — Without Even Considering the Devastation Inflicted by Shale Gas Development
Don't Let the Department of Energy Get Away With It.

Send Your Letter Today.

The Department of Energy has released a report it claims considers the economic ramifications of exporting natural gas, including shale gas, to other countries.   It is seeking public comment on the report.

Upon review one quickly sees that the DOE has commissioned a very limited analysis that fails to paint atrue picture of the economic ramifications of increasing exports.  The report fails totally to consider the community and environmental harms, and resulting economic harms, that will result from the increase in shale gas development that LNG exports will incite. 

Please, send your comments to the Department of Energy today, and let them know that if they are going to consider increased exports then they need to look at the entire picture, including all of the harms that will be brought by increased shale gas development, and the lost opportunity of failing to invest in energy efficiency and truly sustainable energy sources.

For helping making the right points go to our urgent action page:

Deadline is Thursday the 24th.
