  Smells like FAA EIS process...Feds assert control over LNG terminal siting
Found this news article over the weekend. FERC must be taking lessons from FAA on how to permit controversial projects. Why don't we get on the phone with our Fed Reps and have them contact Biden, Carper- Bob Andrews', Curt Weldon's, and Mike Castle's people and ask them to insert minimum safety requirements (upcoming bill) regarding LNG and Salem's Nuke. Sample wording "LNG tankers must not float within 1.5 miles of any active nuclear reactor". Cove Point, MD is about 3.5 SE from Calvert Cliffs --tankers will never float past fully loaded with LNG. . I also wonder how much stock some BP execs have in FPL Energy considering they are about to bring on line a brand new gas fired power plant (estimated cost 300 million) in Marcus Hook, PA. I am sure there will be plenty of cheap gas for FPL Energy once BP LNG goes in. How cozy. When do we get a say regarding resources that are managed by Federal dollars?

"It makes me wonder why FERC has stakeholder representation as part of the process at all. They came here and told us the public had a say," said Casi Callaway, director of the Mobile Bay Watch environmental group. "I think this is something that every legislator from city council person to federal senator should outright oppose, because if the public doesn't have a say in their own community, what is the purpose of having legislators?"

In January, Alabama Gov. Bob Riley employed a little-known provision of state law to block ExxonMobil Corp.'s proposed LNG terminal on Mobile Bay. He refused to allow ExxonMobil to use the "submerged lands" beneath Mobile Bay that are owned by the state until an independent safety study was conducted. The state claims that the company would need Alabama's permission to build a dock for LNG tankers on the underwater land.
