Proposed Enbridge-Spectra Energy Merger is Bad News for Consumers and a Clean Energy Future

Food & Water Watch

WASHINGTON - “The proposed merger of Enbridge and Spectra Energy, two fossil fuel pipeline giants that already control much of the oil and gas flow throughout the country, would be bad news for energy consumers and terrible news for the clean energy revolution on which the future of our planet depends. The consolidation of these companies would only enhance the power of the oil and gas industry to manipulate the energy marketplace and encourage the continued use of fracking, the widely used fossil fuel extraction method that is inherently hazardous to human health and our environment.
