Fracking, Cove Point

Giant slingshot from Interfaith Power & Light reads "David vs. Cove Point", a reference to the biblical tale of the underdog David against Goliath. Interfaith Power & Light (MD-DC-NoVA) works with hundreds of congregations of all faiths across Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia to save energy, go green, and respond to climate change. Hundreds of environmental activists rallied near the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. before marching 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. 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)
