Delaware Riverkeeper Network’s 2019 Pipeline Webinar Series:
Defeating Shale Gas Infrastructure
Tools for Communities from the Latest Legal Challenges
Across the nation, legal action and advocacy fueled by greater legal awareness are becoming some of the most powerful tactics in fighting the proliferation of fracked gas pipelines. Join us to learn about the latest strategies, tools, and emerging successes in challenging fracked gas infrastructure projects through a series of exciting new legal case studies. In this webinar series, you will hear from the top legal minds, experts, and advocates that are shaping the landscape for challenging pipelines across the country. Use the lessons learned and precedent set in the latest legal battles to help inform your battle at home. Discover the latest on what the shifting legal and regulatory landscape means for your pipeline battle. And get equipped with the strongest tools to defeat individual pipeline projects, through both advocacy and litigation, while strengthening the larger unified battle against FERC regulated pipelines throughout the country.
Each Webinar will be from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
NEPA: The Environmental Review Process, How Pipeline Companies Circumvent it, & How to Fight Back.
Tuesday, March 19th, 6:30 p.m.
Learn about the environmental analysis mandated by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and some of the ways that FERC and pipeline companies attempt to side step this requirement and minimize the appearance of a pipeline’s impacts—by illegally breaking projects into smaller parts (known as segmentation), or by otherwise limiting the scope of the review. Learn what you can do to identify and fight back against this in your community.

Featuring: Stephen Schima, Save our Environment; Carolyn Elefant, Law Office of Carolyn Elefant; Margaret Shugart, Big Bend Conservation Alliance; and Aaron Stemplewicz, Delaware Riverkeeper Network
Learn about FERC’s legal obligation to analyze greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and climate change impacts for proposed natural gas infrastructure—including those from upstream fracking operations induced by the project, as well as the emissions from downstream end uses of the gas being transported by the pipeline. Hear about the recent and ongoing legal battles to ensure FERC follows this mandate; and how you can help hold FERC accountable for these consequences when an infrastructure project is placed in your neighborhood.
