CRMC Hearing on National Grids proposed LNG liquefaction plant

CRMC Hearing on National Grid's proposed LNG liquefaction plant

One Capitol Hill
Providence, RI  02908 Map

This is it! WE NEED YOU! to come to the hearing, stand with NoLNGinPVD and help convice the council that a fracked gas liquefaction facility is not needed, should not be financed with rate payer money and does not belong in an environmentally compromised community of color less than 50 feet from the coastline. Filling the room with people opposing the project CAN and WILL influence the council. Please STAND WITH US!! And please contact us if you are interested in testifying!
It is environmental racism.
It is toxic.
It is at risk to storm surges and increasingly frequent and dangerous weather related to climate change.
It is surrounded by other toxic, explosive infrastructure whose cumulative impacts and dangers have never been measured.
This will impact the bay, this will impact the air, this will impact the residents of Washington Park and South Providence. This will be paid for by the same communities it puts in danger. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

The Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC), traditionally one of the state's most powerful regulatory commissions, restricts coastal development when scientific evidence and public testimony demonstrate "likely" environmental harm. They are trying to pass the buck and say the decision ultimately lies with FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) which is true, but a bold action by CRMC could influence FERC and stop the project!

The meetings are being held across from the State House in the Department of Administration Cafeteria at One Capitol Hill Providence, RI 02908

No More Dirty Power Plants in Rhode Island!

Thursday November 30th - 5:30pm - Thursday November 30th - 7:00pm

No More Dirty Power Plants in Rhode Island!

Providence Friends Meeting
99 Morris Ave
Providence, RI  02906 Map

Burdening Rhode Island with another dirty, fossil fuel plant is bad for our environment, worse for climate change, and a giant step backwards for our state's energy independence.

But building an unnecessary polluting power plant in Burrillville, Rhode Island is just what Invenergy is trying to do.

CLF has been fighting Invenergy in courtrooms and hearing rooms to try to stop this plant – but we can't fight this battle alone.

Join us as we talk through our case against Invenergy and the most recent actions taken by CLF and Burrillville to stop the plant. We'll hold a Q&A, where you can learn more about how to get involved in the fight against dirty power in Rhode Island.

Event is free and open to the public, although space is limited! Please RSVP to Heather Greenwood at hgreenwood@clf.org by Wednesday, November 22, 2017. Modest refreshments will be served.
