"Climate: D.C. Circuit Ruling Could Shut Down Pipeline"

"A federal court may shut down a Southeast natural gas pipeline in a stunning rebuke of government regulators who approved the project.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit yesterday refused to revisit its 2017 ruling that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission should have taken a closer look at climate impacts from the Sabal Trail pipeline.

As soon as the court issues a formal mandate finalizing the decision, Sabal Trail's federal certificates will be void, and operations will come to a halt. The D.C. Circuit is expected to issue the mandate next week."
