Fracking, Cove Point

Hundreds of environmental activists march on N. Capitol Street from the U.S. Capitol to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) headquarters on July 13, 2014 to urge FERC to reject a permit for Dominion Resources' proposed LNG export facility at Cove Point, Maryland, 50 miles from the White House on the Chesapeake Bay, claiming it would pose a major threat to the environment. Banners read "Stop Gas Exports" and "Stop Fracked Gas Exports at Cove Point and Beyond". Cove Point is one of about two dozen projects that hope to ship a growing bounty of domestic natural gas to countries in Asia and Europe. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
