Our Old Broadwater Foe Resurfaces in Keystone XL Pipeline Proposal

I guess haven't been paying enough attention to the Keystone XL pipeline proposal that is causing so much controversy in Washington because I just realized today that the company that wants to build it is our old friend TransCanada.

TransCanada, as I'm sure you remember, is the the company which -- along with Shell -- brought us the Broadwater fiasco.

That proposal, to build a huge natural gas terminal in the publicly-owned waters of Long Island Sound, wasted our time, energy and money from when it was first proposed, in late 2004, to when Governor David Patterson finally killed it in 2008.

The only reason it wasn't a complete and utter waste was that it showed that occasionally governments recognize a bad idea when they see one.
