Dominion lied. time to revoke the Cove Point permit.



Last Fall, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) made a huge mistake and permitted the construction of a massive fracked-gas export facility in Cove Point, Maryland.

Within days, local allies had appealed FERC's decision in the courts and with federal regulators. But Dominion resources, the company behind Cove Point and other local fracked gas pipelines, has begun construction anyway.

Our allies in Maryland are desperate to stop their homes, community and our collective environment from being destroyed by this project. They've done all the 'right' things: appealed to FERC's own rules, asked the courts to intercede, ANYTHING to get the project stopped or put on hold.

FERC promised to listen, and is required to consider an appeal. But while they dither Dominion just keeps building and building. And every day brings our climate and the community of Cove Point closer to a disaster. So our friends from Cove Point are going back again to occupy the FERC Commissioners' meeting, demanding that they respond to the appeal and stop construction. Sign here to support them, and send FERC a message that it's time to un-plug their ears and respond to the public's concern about fracked gas exports.
