This week the Nova Scotia Advocate reported on efforts by German anti-fracking activists to stop the German government from giving a financial guarantee to Peridae, the company behind the Goldboro LNG proposal. This proposal includes an Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) plant designed to export LNG from Goldboro, Nova Scotia in Guysborough County.
Gastivist Berlin have written an open letter calling on the German government to halt this financial guarantee which reads: New gas infrastructure delays the switch to 100% renewable energies in Germany and abroad. Publicly funded investments in natural gas are at the expense of renewables and block the way to the energy transition, which must be implemented immediately. Investments should be made exclusively in renewable energy.
