“The billion cubic foot, Liquefied Natural Gas storage and processing facility is part of a massive and harmful fossil fuel infrastructure build-out in Robeson County – all located in an 8-mile radius of the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline terminus in Prospect. The LNG facility is also 4 miles from Maxton, a predominately African American town. The need for new natural gas infrastructure is unsubstantiated according to the NC Department of Environmental Quality, which stated recently, “The cost of renewable energy resources is rapidly declining, and the economics now favor utility-scale solar and onshore wind plus storage over construction of natural gas infrastructure” (NC Department of Environmental Quality Comments to FERC on Mountain Valley Pipeline Expansion, September 16, 2019).
Join individuals and organizations who oppose the expansion of harmful, carbon-based, natural gas production and who promote a clean, renewable energy future and job growth across North Carolina.
Meet at the open field on Red Springs Road across from United by Faith Church.
