Here is a copy of my second testimony before the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee for the Northern Pass at the Plymouth hearing. Speakers were given a three minute limit so I did have to omit some words/sentences that night but I retained them here for full impact. Imagine, we just have three minutes for a … More My Three Minutes ~ Testimony Before the SEC in Plymouth, NH
Here’s my recent comment for the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee hearing held in Plymouth, New Hampshire. The text I placed in parentheses served as a cue for me to either include or exclude depending on the time allotted (usually just three minutes). 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.

We don’t want to see miles upon miles of steel spires above our tree canopy … More The Window of Hydropower

Before I get to business, here are some images that I enjoyed finding while doing research: March of the pylons. Or run for your lives!
