The Mountain Valley Pipeline is unnecessary, not in the public interest, and poses major threats to the climate and environment.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is poised to permit the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP), an interstate natural gas pipeline proposed to transport fracked gas 300 miles from the Marcellus region of West Virginia into Virginia.
