Three corporations want to build liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants at the Port of Brownsville, Texas.
The Rio Grande Valley community needs people to write to French banks and any other financial institutions funding and supporting three proposed LNG facilities, which are to be located on a two-lane road, Rte 48, along the Brownsville Ship Channel near South Padre Island and Port Isabel.
Dr. Sarah Bishop Merrill has written a letter requesting a TCEQ Public Meeting on Centurion’s Heavy Condensate Upgrader Facility proposed for the region, the Lower Rio Grande Valley, near the Port, Brownsville Ship Channel and the Bahia Grande Wildlife Refuge.
They also need general support in their fight against the harmful effects of the oil and gas industry, in particular, the fracking in Texas, which has been poisoning the water supply and stimulating earthquakes at faults.
