Governor Malloy’s dirty little energy secret is that there are four Keystone XL-style “natural” gas pipeline projects proposed to cross the state, and one already under construction. The purpose of these pipeline expansions is transport and export: transport shale gas across the region from Pennsylvania to Maine, and from there export to Canada for overseas export. Governor Malloy should follow the President’s example and revise his energy policy away from dirty fuel transport and export pipeline projects and to support for clean power.
The Keystone XL pipeline was rejected because it was found that it would be bad for the climate, bad for the economy, and bad for the public; these same facts apply to the Spectra and Kinder Morgan shale gas pipeline expansions proposed for our state. 350CT is demanding that our electrical grid should no longer be powered by coal, nuclear energy, and shale gas; we must transition quickly to 100% renewable power.
People across Connecticut will rally on November 21st at 12 noon at the State Capitol for 100% renewable energy for 100% of the people; to learn more about this campaign, go to 350CT.org, email organizers@350CT.org, or call (203) 350-3508.
