Action alert! We’re going to FLOOD FERC with intervenor applications. Deadline Jan 6.

Take a Stand Against the Kinder Morgan Pipeline: Become an Intervenor

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has accepted Kinder Morgan’s application for the Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline and will soon launch its environmental review. Climate Action Now encourages everyone to sign up as an “intervenor”  in order to send a clear message to both FERC and Kinder Morgan that the people of Western Mass are united in our determination that this pipeline will never be built.

All you need to do to become an intervenor is to go online and fill out a form that states your “interest” in this project.  Given that we would all be negatively impacted if this pipeline were ever built we all have a stake in the outcome and are therefore interested parties. Although this is a straightforward action (go here for directions) we encourage you to come to a workshop where you will be guided through the process and can file your document on the spot if you bring along a laptop, ipad or smartphone. The deadline for filing is January 6th and the last two workshops will be held this coming weekend.
