Newsday's Cynical and Parochial Position on Broadwater

This editorial in Newsday pissed me off. What it essentially says is, Broadwater’s LNG terminal will be really bad for Long Island Sound in lots of ways, and we oppose it, but even though it would be really bad for Long Island Sound, we would change our opinion if Broadwater provided Long Islanders with more and cheaper natural gas. It's a big Sound, and only part of it is in Long Island, but we wouldn't care if it gets degraded, we certainly wouldn't care if Connecticut's part of the Sound gets degraded, if only we could get more out of the deal than what Broadwater is offering.

It’s a cost-benefit trade-off of the most cynical and parochial sort.
