The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), headed by a three-person voting body, has the power to shut down work for the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipelines. With so many ongoing investigations and court cases proving that these projects shouldn’t be built in the first place, there is no excuse for construction to be allowed to continue. But FERC — with a troubling track record of rubber-stamping unnecessary fossil fuel projects — doesn’t do its job without public pressure. So it’s time to dial up that pressure. The Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) points out that FERC has issued stop-work orders for these two pipelines in the past, and could do so again. But only if we all continue to speak up.
