No LNG! Campaign Victory

After a year-long campaign against Safe Harbor Energy the plans to build an offshore LNG facility have been shut down!  In September 2010, the collective of grassroots organizers working to see its closure were informed in writing that the plan would not go forward, nor would developers get adjacent state approval.  Sparrow would like to thank Ryan Hunter, the Surfrider Foundation, Clean Ocean Action and everyone who participated in this effort!

This plan was bad for the environment, ocean life, and beach goers. It posed a threat to security in the Northeast, and it broadened our dependence on foreign sources of fossil fuels which can only lead to political tensions & potential future conflicts. Together we said NO TO LNG OFF OUR SHORES. With a few easy ways people took action against this proposed plan to build an artificial island 13 miles south of Long Beach.
