It’s time for banks to stop funding fracked gas and the dangerous Mountain Valley Pipeline. This massive, dirty energy project is over three years and $3 billion over budget, and is harming communities, waterways and ecosystems across Appalachia -- yet banks keep pouring billions of dollars into developers’ coffers. Now, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, developers are rushing to bring thousands of workers into vulnerable rural communities that are experiencing some of the highest infection rates in the region.
The MVP is already an environmental disaster, having been fined over $2 million for more than 350 water quality violations and threatening over 1,000 sensitive rivers, streams, and drinking water sources. If built, it would bring with it the danger of life-threatening explosions and result in greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to over 25 coal-fired plants every year!
