Stop fracked gas exportsHundreds of protesters marched Sunday in Washington, D.C., to show their opposition to a planned natural gas export terminal in Maryland that would ship gas fracked in the United States overseas to Asia.

The Stop Fracked Gas Exports rally, backed by more than 40 environmental groups, called on the U.S. Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulations Committee (FERC) to halt final approval of a port they say will endanger local health and safety.

"This Cove Point terminal would drain huge pools of Marcellus Shale gas for export 6,000 miles to Asia. It would be the first such liquefied natural gas export facility ... ever, built right next to a residential neighborhood," the groups said in a press release. "Local residents are deeply concerned about an accident on the facility that could escalate into a major fire or other life-threatening event."

Nearby residents believe many homes would be within one mile of the proposed terminal, Think Progress reported.
