SpectraBusters Panel:

There's more to be done so there's another meeting later

3PM Saturday 29 March 2014
Lowndes County, GA
SpectraBusters Panel
Pipeline? No!

Elected officials and candidates for public office, are
invited to a SpectraBusters panel discussion in Lowndes
County, Georgia. Topics will include potential pipeline
routes, property rights (eminent domain, property values),
water issues (aquifer, sinkholes, springs), whether Florida
even needs more power, better power sources (solar, wind,
conservation, and efficiency), noise, health, and hazards.
A representative from the pipeline company is invited to be
on the panel to present their perspective. SpectraBusters
and allies from all states are invited to attend, and are
encouraged to hold panels elsewhere.

Why: Spectra Energy, which had compressor station leaks in
Maine in January and in Pennsylvania last year, plus
multiple fines by Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety
Administration (PHMSA) for corrosion and leaks, and a record
$15 million EPA fine for PCB contamination, proposes a
hundred-foot-wide gash through our lands for their huge
36 inch Sabal Trail gas pipeline from Alabama through
Georgia to feed Florida Power and Light (FPL) and Duke
Energy for no benefit to local citizens and rate hikes for
FPL customers. A one-time payment is not enough for
decreased property values, permanent destruction, and
hazards of leaks and explosions, when FPL and Spectra and
Duke would profit forever. The gas comes from fracking in
Pennsylvania and Texas, destroying watersheds, farmlands,
and drinking water. Conservation, efficiency, and solar
power are cheaper and bring jobs and energy here where we
need them.
