LNG Around the Region

The amount of time, money and energy being spent around the region thinking about, responding to, and fighting proposals for liquefied natural gas proposals is mind-boggling. For those following the issue beyond Long Island Sound, here are recent newspaper pieces from Portland and Bangor, Maine, Fall River, Massachusetts, and Providence, Rhode Island.

These proposals, along with the TransCanada/Shell proposal for the Sound, are just a small percentage of all the LNG proposals being reviewed now.

It's become common to complain that it would be easier to deal with these if the country had a coherent, progressive energy policy.

Equally useful would be a coherent, progressive agreement among environmental groups and aggrieved state and local governments to review and fight the proposals together.
