Imagine you and your friends are visiting South Padre Island, Boca Chica State Park, or the Laguna Atascosa Wildlife Refuge. As you swim, watch the sunset, or look for wildlife, you're interrupted by the loud roar of a deepwater tanker ship, the rotten smell of flaring gas, and rows of 200-foot tall storage tanks blighting your view.From finance to extraction to transport to exports, the fracked gas industry in South Texas is part of an international fracking cycle that pollutes communities all over the world.Three companies, Texas LNG, Rio Grande LNG, and Annova LNG, are planning to build three of the largest fracked gas export terminals in the country and construct massive pipelines to export gas for overseas profit out of Port Isabel and South Padre Island.This would drive more destructive fracking across Texas, and dangerous pipelines and export terminals in the Rio Grande Valley -- all so corporate polluters can make a profit.But here’s the good news! These projects in the Valley are not a done deal. There is tremendous opposition. The Lower Rio Grande Valley Sierra Club group and the Save RGV from LNG coalition have been fighting LNG for the past four years and the cities of Port Isabel, South Padre Island, and Laguna Vista have all passed anti-LNG resolutions.Get involved with the movement to protect the Valley from fracked gas and help us #BreaktheFrackingCycle.
