Here’s my recent comment for the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee hearing held in Plymouth, New Hampshire.

So this isn’t the greatest writing as I’m not a speech writer,… More Can We Recharge in the Presence of Northern Pass?
Oh the noise, noise, noise! I’m sounding like the Grinch pointing out once again the noise Northern Pass would produce but with good reason.

The Conservation Media Group Petition to Bury or Stop the Northern Pass high voltage transmission line proposal for New Hampshire is still going strong after its intended deadline back in 2014! But the original signatures needed for the event Governor Hassan was hosting* in July 2014 have already been presented to her. To present the Governor… More Sign This Petition Because . . .
I was hiking at a 500 acre park in Rhode Island and as I approached these transmission towers I couldn’t help but think about New Hampshire and the proposed Northern Pass. Will New Hampshire’s hiking trail blazes be on steel like this? How many more paths must we share with steel giants? Raise your voice… More Hiking Among Steel Giants

Just the facts. No more “stories”! It’s hard to believe everything we read on the Northern Pass sponsored websites. But there are reliable sources out there.
