The Adorers are extremely pleased that the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit temporarily halted all construction activity by Transco on the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline effective immediately. The Order was a preliminary response to the Emergency Motion for Stay filed by the Allegheny Defense Project and other organizations, including Lancaster Against Pipelines, concerned that FERC improperly evaluated the environmental impacts of the Pipeline. The D.C. Circuit Court’s Order stayed the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s Order approving the Pipeline to allow the Court time to consider the Emergency Motion. The Adorers hope that a permanent stay will be entered because environmental science confirms the development of this massive fossil fuel pipeline will only accelerate global warming and harm God’s sacred earth.
