FrackFreeNC Sends Governor, DEQ Secretary Letter on Major ACP Concerns!

Last Friday, FrackFreeNC Allies sent a letter summarizing our many concerns about the serious economic, social justice, safety and environmental problems of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Below is a summary of the letter. Click to read the full letter.

Dear Governor Roy Cooper and DEQ Secretary Michael Regan:

The Atlantic Coast Pipeline is Unneeded, Costly, Dangerous and Unjust for NC

1. The ACP is not needed for residential and economic development needs and increases our climate vulnerability.
2. The ACP will actually increase costs for NC electric ratepayers, by paying for construction and rising fuel costs.
3. Pipelines will be even LESS needed in the long term because renewables (wind and solar), are the largest new source of energy generation.
4. The ACP’s claim of many new jobs to be created by the ACP is a gross exaggeration. Construction jobs would only be several hundred in NC, lasting for a few months.  Only 18 permanent jobs would be created in NC!
5. Low income and people of color communities and landowners would be disproportionately impacted.
6. The pipeline would bring with it the risk of leakage, fire and explosions, additional expenses to local governments, and impacts to groundwater and private wells.
7. Critical natural resources, unique to North Carolina, would be substantially impacted, including major rivers, hundreds of tributaries, unique wetlands, groundwater, as well as air quality and landscapes.
