Lowndes County had no fatailities or major injuries from the recent storm,
but our neighbors to the west and north were not so lucky,

adjourned to executive session to discuss litigation:
does that mean they’re going to sue the cities about tax distribution

A reminder of why to stop pipeline companies from burying investors’ money in the ground and get on with solar power:
the pipeline that exploded in Texas last week was
half owned by Spectra Energy,
the pipeline company behind
Sabal Trail, AIM, Penneast, and numerous other fracked methane invasions
and behind thirty years of undetected corrosion resulting in leaks, explosions, property damage, and deaths.
The pipeline company didn’t detect it and couldn’t even turn it off quickly.
Want to bet that it,
like Spectra’s Pennsylvania explosion last spring, was corrosion?
A very Texas report said “no people or cattle were injured”

SO is buying 50% of SONAT from KMI,
as multiple people have pointed out,
including someone from Southern Company.
Unfortunately SO is not just investing in existing pipelines:
this purchase is about
“specific growth opportunities”,
and yes, it’s tied to
SO’s recent purchase of AGL.
Southern Company needs to stop plugging dying 20th century fossil fuels
and get on with what it’s already started with solar power (and offshore wind).
