Fractivists are battling a natural gas power plant in Southeastern Pennsylvania in a place called Nicetown, pulling all the usual not-so-nice stunts.
Last November a group of environmental thugs pledged to “swarm” and shut down a SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) meeting where a vote would be taken to build a Marcellus gas-powered electric plant that would provide electricity to SEPTA’s northern Regional Rail lines, a win/win for all Pennsylvanians. The reason they wanted to shut down the meeting was to stop the vote because the clean-burning plant being proposed would burn a “fossil fuel.” They got sidetracked.

Nice.
The AMS vote “came as a surprise” to the antis. It was their “last hope” to stop the plant. So what happens now? Seems they haven’t lost hope. They’re litigating and demanding SEPTA’s approval be overturned by other regulatory bodies.
