No LNG terminal on the Shannon - Climate Change & Methane

Date:

We interviewed William Hederman, an environmental researcher living in County Clare, about the planned Liquefied Natural Gas terminal on the Shannon. Construction of it will mean Ireland will fail to meet its Climate Change commitments and will instead be tied into pumping out additional Greenhouse Gases for decades. As the LNG will come from the US it will includes fracked gas, a process banned in Ireland that releases three times as much of the very powerful Climate Change gas methane as conventional gas.

William is working as part of Futureproof Clare (FB, Twitter) who are campaigning against Shannon LNG. The plant would be on the Shannon estuary at Ballylongford, in North Kerry.
