Japan's LNG Funding in the US is a Betrayal of People and Planet for Profit

Louisiana's shrimpers, the backbone of coastal communities, are facing a crisis. Their way of life, passed down for generations, is under threat from a surge in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals funded by Japanese banks and corporations with support from the US government. Let this article serve as a stark warning to the governments; your investments prioritize corporate greed over the well-being of people and the environment. The consequences of this LNG boom are dire. Shrimpers report declining catches and dying ecosystems around these terminals. Industrial waste and pollution are choking the very lifeblood of these communities. These problems are not simply anecdotal; the shrimpers themselves are experiencing health issues they attribute to the environmental degradation. This race to exploit Louisiana's resources for a quick profit comes at a human cost. Shrimpers are not faceless statistics – they are families who have relied on these waters for their livelihoods for generations. Their way of life, and the culture it sustains, is under threat. The blame for this crisis falls squarely on the shoulders of the Japanese and American governments. By allowing and funding these LNG projects, you are not just turning a blind eye to the suffering you are causing – you are actively enabling it. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and President Joe Biden, we urge you to take immediate action. Visit the affected communities in Louisiana. See firsthand the devastation your investments are wreaking. Talk to the shrimpers, listen to their stories, and witness the dying ecosystem. Then, take decisive action. Halt funding for new LNG projects. Invest instead in renewable energy sources. There is a future where Japan and America can meet their energy needs without sacrificing the well-being of people and the planet. Choose that future.

            NKT... the Biden administration should stop all these games with people they are having with people's minds and futures. If they are for the planet, they should stop this greed and serve the people's best interest, which is to do away with fossil fuels.
