Citizens Campaign for the Environment just sent out a press release saying that the U.S. Department of Commerce agrees with New York State that the Broadwater LNG terminal is wrong for Long Island Sound. The Commerce Department is upholding the state's decision of late April.
The Broadwater guys seemed to think that the decision would go their way. Read this post for immediate background although there will be more throughout the day, I'm sure.
This is a blog about environmental issues in the New York area in general and Long Island Sound in particular. I'm the author of
"This Fine Piece of Water: An Environmental History of Long Island Sound," which came out in 2002. I wrote about the environment and other issues during almost two decades as a newspaper reporter.
Unless you tell me otherwise, I'll assume it's OK to publish what you send me.
