Tell the U.S. Department of Transportation to completely ban the transportation of liquefied natural gas – a highly explosive and volatile substance – by rail.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) officially suspended a rule issued under the Trump administration that allowed the transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) by rail! This means New Fortress Energy’s plan to have two 100-car trains transporting this highly explosive substance daily along a densely populated 200-mile route in the northeast is foiled… at least for now.
This rule suspension is only temporary. If DOT doesn’t pass a new rule by June 2025, then the old rule allowing LNG by rail is reinstated. And we need to make sure any new rule DOT issues will ban LNG by rail with zero exceptions.
Oil and gas companies have a long history of pouring a lot of resources into protecting their profits and will likely lobby for workarounds in the final rule – even if it means putting communities like yours in danger.
Help us overcome the influence of Big Oil and Gas to ensure that this new rule bans the transportation of LNG by rail – with zero exceptions.
