Darum wollen sie Gas aus Russland stoppen.
Erste #Schiefergaslieferung aus Fracking von der #USA erreicht Großbritannien. #USA drängen mit ihrem #Erdgas auf den europäischen Markt.
Am 8. Juli 2017 traf die erste Lieferung verflüssigten Erdgases aus den USA am 60 Kilometer östlich von London gelegenen Isle of Grain-Terminal in Kent ein, mit einer Million Kubikmetern Fassungsvermögen Europas größte LNG-Speicheranlage.

Der LNG-Transporter GALEA (LNG - Liquefied Natural Gas, verflüssigtes Erdgas) kam aus dem Sabine Pass Export-Terminal im Golf von Mexiko und war von Total gechartert worden, die Ladung: genügend Flüssiggas, um etwa die Hälfte des durchschnittlichen Tagesbedarfs des Vereinigten Königreichs an Erdgas zu befriedigen. Der Inhalt des Tankers wurde in 30 Stunden in einen der Tanks des Grain Terminals umgeladen. Das Terminal kann das Gas nach Kaufbenachrichtigung innerhalb einer Stunde ins nationale Netz einspeisen.

Feds Say FPL Can Store Nuclear Waste Below Miami's Drinking Water Because It's "Not Likely" to Leak
Environmental groups have warned that any chance the project could leak cancerous or radioactive waste into South Florida's drinking water should force FPL to reconsider its plans.

The NRC ruled that " the wastewater is unlikely to migrate to the Upper Floridan Aquifer; and even if it did, the concentration of each of the four contaminants would be below the applicable United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) primary drinking water standard and, accordingly, would pose no known health risk."

FPL customers have already unfairly been charged more than $300 million towards this increasingly speculative project and we believe that must stop and FPL's shareholders must start shouldering the financial burden."

A citizen-led petition to convince lawmakers to legislate against the plan now has more than 67,000 signatures.
