The Meeting for Worship is organized by Chesapeake Quarterly Meeting –a coalition of 9 Friends (Quaker) Meetings in Central and Southern Maryland, including Patuxent Friends Meeting which is adjacent to the proposed Cove Point Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Facility. Chesapeake Quarterly Meeting has reached unity that the expansion of the Cove Point LNG facility must be stopped. See minute: http://chesapeake.bym-rsf.net/?p=469

We’ll come together to send a decisive message to President Obama and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission: Say “no!” to fracked gas exports at Cove Point and nationwide. The Cove Point plant poses serious safety risks to the Lusby, Maryland community, will result in increased demand for fracked gas from West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania, significantly increase air pollution and worsen climate change.
