      on the score of massive LNG export terminals with pending applications.

      FERC is doing their 3rd EA on various aspects of the Cheniere proposal, and is requiring EISes on most, but not all of the others.

      The Sierra Club (and I) submitted scoping comments to FERC stating that increased LNG exports will cause increased gas production which will cause more fracking, so will FERC please look at the indirect and cumulative impacts from increased fracking, in the EIS.
