Fighting the frackers at Cove Point

Virginia-based Dominion Energy is planning a $3.8 billion project to build the East Coast’s first Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export center at Cove Point in Southern Maryland. Cove Point sits on the Chesapeake Bay in a rural beach community surrounded by state park land just 30 minutes outside of Washington, D.C.

On July 9th the Washington, D.C. chapter of System Change Not Climate Change partnered with the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN), 350.org-D.C. and local activists to host a panel discussion about Cove Point.  This was leading up to the mass protest outside of the Capitol and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on July 13th.
