Mapping and Fighting Demand for Natural Gas: Power Plants and LNG Exports
Mike Ewall, Aaron Kreider & Amy Wilson
30% of our natural gas is burned up in gas-fired power plants. 10-15 years ago, Pennsylvanians fought off most of the 50+ gas-fired power plants proposed for our state, but proposals for new power plants are back, threatening to further grow the demand for gas production. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals also threaten to drive demand further by exporting gas to other nations. Learn what we’ve done to stop natural gas power plants and LNG terminals in Pennsylvania in the past 15 years, and how you can help stop this misguided trend. This workshop will also demonstrate Energy Justice Network’s interactive mapping project, where you can find existing, proposed, closed and defeated power plants and LNG terminals and connect with the grassroots activists fighting them.
