The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission sought public comment on a 121 mile proposed Constitution Pipeline project to run from Susquehanna County to northern New York. Their "Scoping period" was extended a full month to November 9th 2012.  They are determining if this pipeline is in the public interest. We oppose this project.   We believe this pipeline, all other gas pipelines of this nature and hydrofracking, (with all it's leaks, radioactivity, explosions, spills, sink holes, water usage, earthquakes, silica dust, disposal issues to name a few), is not safe. We believe this 121 mile natural gas pipeline project that would cut through Susquehanna County PA and portions of Broome, Chenango, Delaware and Schoharie Counties in NY, and any associated compressor station(s) is definitely without question NOT IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST.  We believe it benefits the corporate few.  We believe in supporting clean renewable energy. We oppose fracking and want it banned. Fracking, pipelines and compressor stations are fraught with disaster, (they fail, spill, leak, flare, spew, explode...) emitting toxins into our country air, water and land. We have had enough of it!  We want it stopped! We have seen the damage, heard the stories, and want it banned. Immediately.  Read this account where people spoke their minds at a "scoping meeting" open to the general public. (copy and paste it isn't clickable): http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/several-express-opposition-to-natural-gas-pipeline-1.1379639  -  If you agree with us that this pipeline / compressor station(s) is not wanted, and is NOT in the public interest, please sign this petition. Thank you for your help.

      Exxon pipeline rupture is 22 feet long, indicating immense pressure, possible criminal negligence.

      Two weeks ago today, Exxon Mobil's Pegasus pipeline carrying diluted bitumen from Canada ruptured catastrophically, creating a 22-foot long gash that unleashed hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil and toxic chemical diluents into the Central Arkansas town of Mayflower.

      We are destroying the environment, releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere instead of working for viable non fossil fule based alternatives. We are raping prisitne landscapaes and making people ill.

      For the U.S. to be truly energy independent and having a healthy economy, which creates jobs but not environmental health risks, we have to start to mainly invest in renewable energy and energy efficiency, not in expanding the oil and 'natural' gas infrastructure.
