What a night! Thank you everyone who was able to make it out to the Department of Public Utilities hearing this past Thursday. In a nutshell, Berkshire Gas needs approval for a contract to buy gas which would be shipped through the pipeline Kinder-Morgan is trying to build through Western MA. The DPU is supposed to determine whether this contract is for the public good.
Here is a link to the video of the hearing. Watch it to see all kinds of varied, thoughtful, passionate, compelling, brilliant arguments by We the People. There are SO MANY reasons NOT to build this pipeline. How on earth can the DPU approve after a hearing like this?
