AEB Anishinabe Environmental Assessment Board to study the Aliso Canyon LNG Environmental Disaster

While Corporate Enterprises are looking at partnering up on Indigenous land, The Turtle Island Government is concerned with the potential for Large Scale Environmental Disasters, specifically in regards to Pipelines, LNG , Land Storage, Proposed LNG Barges, and the increasing in Fracking practices in the industry, to examine projects to determine what the environmental, social, economic and health implications may be.

The large-scale natural gas leak at Aliso Canyon – is of great concern to The Government of The Anishinabe Nation, the increase in the potential for man made Natural Gas Environmental Disasters. The AEB Anishinabe Environmental Assessment Board ESRD, is looking into the Aliso Canyon Gas Leak.

Anishinabe Nation of The Great Turtle Island Environmental Assessment – adheres to ISO 14001 requirements,

The boards include the Anishinabe Utilities Commission (AUC), the Anishinabe Energy Resources Department (AERD) and The Great Turtle Island Resources Conservation Office (GTINRCO).

The Aliso Canyon gas leak (also called Porter Ranch gas leak[1] and Porter Ranch gas blowout[2]) was a massive natural gasleak that was discovered by SoCalGas employees on October 23, 2015.[3] Gas was released from a well within the Aliso Canyon’sunderground storage facility in the Santa Susana Mountains near Porter Ranch, Los Angeles.[4] The second-largest gas storage facility of its kind in the United States, it belongs to the Southern California Gas Company, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy. On January 6, 2016, Governor Jerry Brown issued a state of emergency.[5] The Aliso gas leak carbon footprint is said to be larger than the Deepwater Horizon leak in the Gulf of Mexico. On February 11, 2016 the gas company reported that it had the leak under control.[6]

On February 18, 2016, state officials announced that the leak was permanently plugged. An estimated 97,100 tonnes (95,600 long tons; 107,000 short tons) of methane and 7,300 tonnes (7,200 long tons; 8,000 short tons) of ethane was released into the atmosphere,[7] making it the worst natural gas leak in U.S. history in terms of its environmental impact.[8][9][10]

PREAMBLE

Know ye all men that The Turtle Island Government fully recognize the Sovereignty and Inherent Preeminent rights of the Original People of the Lands and/or Indigenous First Nations Peoples, represented by the Councils of Hereditary Chiefs, Clan Mothers, Spiritual Leaders as Heads of States, who have a commitment to work together through their Embassies and their Central Banks combining collective strengths, knowledge, collective efforts and influence, to channel those qualities into one common agenda, which is to setup an economic base for reciprocal relations and enhancement of their infrastructure of States in the first instance and to address poverty, humanitarian relief and disaster management on The Great Turtle Island.  Secondly, to have a cohesive working party and realize that the long term effects are fundamental upon having commercial projects, the latter of which must be realistic and viable and which contribute to the building of economies in order to empower The Nations that comprise The Federation of Nations of The Great Turtle Island to provide and care for their people, communities and dependents.
