Draft an Action Alert:
The Gulf Coast is under attack by the fossil fuel industry. Not only are companies racing to build new export facilities, but they are also trying to expand the existing polluting infrastructure. In Corpus Christi Texas, ENBRIDGE plans to expand its Moda Ingleside Energy Center, desecrating the local community, wildlife, and a Karankawa sacred site, to profit from increased crude oil exports.
Corpus Christi is already one of the nation’s hubs for crude oil exports, and the local community and wildlife are suffering the impacts. The ENBRIDGE terminal will account for 25% of the nation’s exports causing significantly higher air pollutants in neighborhoods near the facility. The plumes from previous dredging and ship traffic have also already caused silting of seagrass.
The proposed expansion of ENBRIDGE Ingleside Energy Center would further devastate wildlife, community health, and increase climate pollution. Also in the path of ENBRIDGE’s proposed expansion is McGloin’s Bluff, a known heritage site of the Karankawa Tribe, the original people of the region. There are over 39,000 shards of pottery, 11 fragments of ceramic pipes, 103 arrow points, and a variety of other items specific to the Karankawa culture and way of life located on the site. This cultural heritage of the original native people of Texas must be protected, yet the Indigenous People of the Coastal Bend have not been consulted regarding the proposed industrial development.
On June 17th at 7 pm The Indigenous People of the Coastal Bend & the Ingleside on the Bay Coastal Watch Association the groups held a Stop Moda Now webinar to discuss the proposed expansion! In this time of climate catastrophe, we need to make sure these polluting facilities are shut down, not expanded!
