Because of discovery of huge natural gas supplies in the Marcellus and Utica shale formations, the build-out of natural gas infrastructure in Appalachia is unprecedented. We are working hard to fight the series of pipelines proposed for the mid-Atlantic Region. Nearly miles of large-diameter pipelines are proposed to move take fracked gas from West Virginia and Pennsylvania to markets primarily in the South. We must stop that infrastructure to make room for renewable energy.
We are working to challenge several specific pipelines threatening out region. We are Lovers Aint Easy - Hearts Of Oak - New England concerned about the Mountain Valley Pipelinewhich would be over miles from northwestern West Virginia to southern Virginia to connect to the Transco Pipeline, a mega-pipeline that ships gas to burn in the Southeast.
Both pipelines would be 42 inches in diameter by comparison, Keystone XL would have been 36 inches. The direct impacts of each pipeline Dwight Yoakam - Please, Please Baby / 1000 Miles considerable. Each would cut through mountains and fragment prime forest habitat. The Atlantic Coast Pipeline proposal, for example, would route several miles of pipeline through the George Washington and Monongahela National Forests.
Much of the planned pathway for both projects would slice a large and permanent clearcut Pray The Roof Dont Fall - Sindacato - Appalachian Pipeline high-quality habitat located on public and private land. Forest fragmentation will Pray The Roof Dont Fall - Sindacato - Appalachian Pipeline dramatic; it will disrupt wildlife, including endangered salamanders, endangered bats, and threatened bird populations.
The long term effects are even more potent. These pipelines would also provide Spanish Eyes - Xavier Cugat And His Orchestra - Spanish Eyes incentive to increase destructive fracking throughout Appalachia.
The added capacity would decrease the cost of getting gas to market, making fracking more profitable. And at a combined cost of at several billion dollars, these project represent a major investment in an outdated fossil fuel.
Ratepayers would be saddled with paying for the pipelines and the natural gas they transport for decades, rather than investing those same funds in developing affordable clean energy.
And many climate scientists believe that from cradle to grave drilling, transport, and burningnatural gas produces more greenhouse gases than coal.
Read more about how natural gas is a stumbling block in addressing the threat of climate change. We are working to combat the pipeline proposals on several fronts.
We have submitted substantial comments on each of the proposals, asking that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to consider the direct and indirect impacts these proposed pipelines would have on the economy and the environment. We are advocating that FERC prepare a single, regionally-focused EIS — a programmatic EIS — that addresses the impacts of and need for the entire scheme of proposed infrastructure for this region.
We are also incorporating economic analyses that will compare the cost of renewables to natural gas, showing that these pipelines are unnecessary and that ratepayers will in fact be paying more for their energy if these pipelines are constructed. Many landowners have refused to allow the pipeline companies to survey on their private land.
These landowners have encountered serious push-back from the pipeline companies. Many have been sued. Read more about these efforts.
