Reuters reports that approximately two dozen protesters were arrested at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in Washington, D.C. yesterday. Demonstrators protested hydraulic fracturing and the U.S. gas industry’s push to sell “fracked” liquefied natural gas abroad by blocking entrances to the FERC headquarters for more than 90 minutes. Environmental groups have called on FERC to halt issuing more permits authorizing the construction of LNG export plants until a thorough assessment of climate change impacts is completed.
