As you may know, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has received thousands of comments from citizens concerned about the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Please consider helping to analyze the input received by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regarding the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline. The comments you will review are part of the “scoping” phase, in which citizens, experts and interested parties are to advise FERC on what questions and issues it should consider when writing an Environmental Impact Statement for the ACP. This is all part of FERC’s obligations under the National Environmental Policy Act, or NEPA.
You don’t have to be an expert on the issues to help out, but your help will enable detailed economic and policy analysis that will lead to better information being brought to bear on FERC’s decisions regarding the pipeline over the coming year. If you’d like to learn more about the pipeline proposal and Key-Log Economics’ independent research effort, you can read about it at Key Log Economics’ website.
Please join the many volunteers already at work on this project (there are more than 60 signed up already) by taking the following steps:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to Key-Log Economics’ FERC / NEPA review page and click “I’m in”.
- You will then receive an email with a “packet” of 3 comment letters attached for you to review as well as instructions for using an online form for recording key information from each of the three letters.
When you finish those comments you will let us know you’re finished by replying to the email and we’ll be happy to hear we can check some more comments off our list. And if you’d like to ask for another batch of comments to go through, we will be thrilled!
Thank you in advance for considering, and we hope, participating in this research effort. Your assistance will lead to powerful results as we hold FERC accountable to the voices of the citizens who will be most affected if the pipeline is approved and built.
Let me take the opportunity to thank you also for all you have already done to support our effort. There is much work to be done every day, but the best part of every day is the gratitude I feel for the friends and neighbors who are in this fight with us. We truly cannot thank you enough, and we’ll be thanking you all the more as you pitch in as a citizen-scientist on the review of the FERC comment letters.
Please email Cara Bottorff at email@example.com if you have any other questions about this opportunity or process.
