Shell Broadwater Masterminds
Expensive Shell Broadwater Energy is on the Way

Waterways in the US, are quietly being commandeered by oil companies. In New York, Shell used sneaky tactics like making a one million dollar donation to the corrupt ACORN group to fast track a 1.48 square mile, Yankee Stadium size imported gas facility, right smack in the middle of Long Island Sound.

Take Action against Shell Broadwater

They say Shell Broadwater is a good idea but the Wall Street Journal says they're wrong. They say Shell Broadwater will create jobs but the average LNG terminal employs only twenty people. They say it will save homeowners money, but it wont. They say Shell Broadwater is safe but LNG tankers have all sorts of problems. Fact is, there's only one reason why Shell and TransCanada want to build this thing: they want a $2.5 billion corner of the New York and Connecticut energy market.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is five unelected appointees in Washington DC using eminent domain tactics to secure sites for gas terminals like Shell Broadwater. This is happening in opposition to the views, the wishes and the interests of communities from New York to Oregon. Oil companies have achieved this incrementally, one small approval at a time.

Greetings from Shell's LNG Island Sound!
