Pin plans to store such volatile materials as gasoline, vacuum gas oil, residual oil No. 6, asphalt, diesel, ethanol, MTBE, methanol, benzene, and other petrochemical and chemical products. However, Pin Oak has failed to analyze and determine whether its storage facility can adequately protect the environment.

NO NEW GAS-FIRED POWER PLANT
IN NEW ORLEANS EAST
SIGN & SHARE – Petition to City Council – VOTE NO
A new gas power plant is being proposed in New Orleans East. Although meant to meet our city’s energy needs during periods of high demand, this plant would not have stopped a single one of the outages Entergy experienced last year. There will only be one public hearing between now and February, when the City Council will determine whether Entergy can start charging customers to build this plant.

PROTECT L.A. FROM UNCHECKED
OIL + GAS DEVELOPMENT
The Bayou Bridge Pipeline is a proposed 162-mile crude oil pipeline that would run from Lake Charles to St. James Parish. The pipeline would cross 700 waterways, cut through 600 acres of wetlands (including the delicate Atchafalaya Basin), and cross under Bayou Lafourche (the drinking water source for 300,000 people). The project would end in the town of St. James, where residents are already suffering greatly from petrochemical development.
Energy Transfer Partners, the company behind DAPL and Bayou Bridge, has the worst accident and incident record in the industry. They are attempting to push this project through without full environmental review. We cannot let that happen.
YOU can help… write a letter to Gov. Edwards to request the Army Corps of Engineers conduct an Environmental Impact Statement for the Bayou Bridge Pipeline.
