Ken Summers looks at the absurd claim that the Goldboro LNG project, as Premier Iain Rankin put it, makes sense environmentally.
NOFRAC, along with environmental groups in Quebec, New Brunswick, Alberta and Germany, sent a letter last week to the prime minister, the permier of Nova Scotia and other federal and provincial politicians to share their concerns about the Goldboro LNG project, including its request for nearly $1 billion in federal support. The letter touches on financial risks as well as concerns re climate change, an apparent lack of consultation with Mi’kmaq First Nations, the presence of men camps, and more.

Ken Summers takes a closer look at the viability of the Goldboro LNG plant, and he finds serious obstacles to full development that the company would rather its German government investors wouldn’t know about. Not stated, but implied, this also means that it isn’t too late to resist this mega project that will jeopardize Nova Scotia’s greenhouse gas reduction targets.
News release: A coalition of Canadian and German groups asks Germany to withdraw from a loan guarantee process which would provide more than $4 billion US to Pieridae Energy Limited, a Calgary-based company.
