Campaigns continue against LNG

The Town of Bristol wants to make a donation to Save the Bay to help with their campaign against LNG tankers from coming into our waters. They also want to work in collaboration with Save Bristol Harbor in this fight. This is the year we have to rally against LNG. Just because we've been talking about this for years does not lessen its importance. Jonathan Stone, the new Save the Bay executive director, will be attending the Bristol Town Council meeting on Wednesday January 20 to explain further details re LNG. Save Bristol Harbor will also attend and show their newly created CD presentation on LNG simulation. If you want to gain further info on LNG please show up at this Town Council meeting at Town Hall on Court Street at 7pm.
A recent message below is from Save Bristol Harbor President, Joe Arruda.

"As you know, a proposal before FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) would site an LNG berthing facility in Mount Hope Bay. Save Bristol Harbor is actively opposing this plan as it would forever damage our environment and change the quality of life for all of us who enjoy our local waters.

You can help us fight this proposal by sending your contact information (name, address and e-mail) to We will be coordinating grassroots opposition and will contact you and ask for your help in sending letters and e-mails at key points in the fight.

We are working closely with other local organizations and encourage you to visit Save the Bay’s anti-LNG action center at and sign their online petition. By working together we can ensure that this facility is never built in Mount Hope Bay.

Thank you for your support!

Joseph A. Arruda
Save Bristol Harbor"
