"Key Enviro Group Boosts Focus on LNG, Coal Exports"

"The group 350.org, one of the loudest voices against the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada, will boost its focus on natural gas and coal exports."

"Sources said Bill McKibben, the group's global organizer, is scheduled to hold a call tomorrow with environmental groups related to Dominion Resources Inc.'s $3.8 billion plan to export liquefied natural gas from its Cove Point facility in Maryland.

Phil Aroneanu, 350.org's U.S. managing director, said the group's vision is to take on the fossil fuels industry by targeting its political supporters and investors. The organization is also tapping into grass-roots resistance directed at specific infrastructure projects cropping up across the country, with a focus on exports."
