FERC must reconsider the climate and environmental justice impacts of two proposed LNG terminals, the federal appeals court ruled Tuesday. While the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit did not throw out the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s approval of the terminals — which would both be built in predominantly low-income communities and communities of color near the Port of Brownsville, Texas — the unanimous ruling is a victory for community and environmental groups. The court’s decision comes as Democrats on the Hill have sought to increase attention on the currently vacant seat on the commission with their Hot FERC Summer campaign.
