Friends of Nelson County Virginia

Sharon Ponton from Friends of Nelson has organized an anti-pipeline protest (that will apparently be covered by the Washington Post) at the Democratic Quarterly Meeting in Newport News tomorrow (Saturday, December 6th).  Apparently Governor McAuliffe will be in attendance.  Sorry I could not provide more notice but I just received this request.  Sharon’s message is below:

TIME TO STAND UP AND BE COUNTED! Mad that our representatives have sold us out? SHOW THEM this Saturday that we expect them to do their job! National media knows we are planning this protest and wants to cover it – please help give them something to cover! Dec. 6, at the Democratic Party Quarterly Meeting, Magnuson Hotel & Convention Center at Oyster Point, 1000 Omni Boulevard, Newport News, VA at 9 AM. Please share this event with friends and relatives and ask them to stand in for you if you can’t make it! RAIN OR SHINE! You will be able to go inside.  To carpool from Nelson, please meet at 6 AM at Woods Mill at the intersection of Rts. 6 and 29. Bring signs, and wear T shirts and/or buttons! Or meet us there at 9 AM! For more information or just to RSVP, please contact Sharon Ponton: ponton913@msn.com.

Gas pipeline propaganda: Lies, damn lies and more

The $3 billion venture originally planned to carve through Floyd County but ran into massive citizen resistance and environmental realities that even the rubber-stamping folks at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) couldn’t ignore.

If the often-vague and always sidestepping executives of EQT Corp. and NextEra Energy thought Franklin County would be a cakewalk for their natural pipeline express running from West Virginia to Chatham, they got a hardcore lesson of what country folks think of fast-buck corporate types in Rocky Mount.

A large crowd of angry residents of Franklin descended on a meeting between the County Board of Supervisors and a briefing by EQT and NextEra — the partners for Mountain Valley Pipeline — with pointed questions and skepticism that were not answered and left most with more questions and few answers.

Comment on the EPA’s “Clean Power Plan”

The EPA’s proposed Clean Power Plan creates emission guidelines for states that address greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. The goal is to lower emissions of carbon dioxide, and thus reduce the effects of climate change. Unfortunately, the proposed Clean Power Plan has some serious flaws that may make it do more harm than good when it comes to the climate, and actually serve to incentivize fracking.
