NEWS BRIEF: New York Activists Oppose The Latest LNG Regulations

On October 30, 2013, New Yorkers from across the state rallied outside of the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) in Albany to protest its latest regulations on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). The proposed regulations would lift a moratorium on LNG that followed a major explosion and death of 40 workers in Staten Island in 1973.The new regulations, or, more aptly, the lack thereof, would give a green light for the oil and gas industry to potentially build out a massive infrastructure for fracking, a delivery system designed to reap huge profits from the export of fracked gas to countries abroad.
