A Liquid Natural Gas [LNG] Terminal is planned for an area protected for dolphins and wild birds on the River Shannon.
The terminal is supported by the Irish Government despite Fracking being banned by Ireland in 2017 because of its damaging impacts.
The European Union have designated it a ‘Project of Common Interest’ . This means the project qualifies for grants from the €30 billion EU ‘Connecting Europe Funding’.
Friends of the Irish Environment are bringing a third legal action against the Shannon LNG project – this time to remove the project from the European Union ‘Projects of Common Interest’ list.
Why? – because the required sustainability and climate assessments were never conducted. Drilling, transporting, and delivering fracked gas has a global warming footprint 44% greater than coal.
This is a real, effective Climate Action with far-reaching consequences for Ireland and Europe’s energy choices – and for all our futures. We believe we will win the case but the Irish Legal System is expensive and we need your help…
Please donate to fund the legal team making our case, all the way to the European Court of Justice.
