UPDATED: Vt. Gas, Cornwall eye agreement on Phase II pipeline

Posted on December 17, 2014 |
By John Flowers



CORNWALL — The Cornwall selectboard on Tuesday evening tabled action on a negotiated agreement with Vermont Gas Systems regarding the Phase II natural gas pipeline, following pleas from most of the approximately 25 people who turned out at the board’s meeting to argue the pact was flawed.

The agreement, unveiled this week, calls for Cornwall to drop its opposition to the project in exchange for Vermont Gas making some substantial financial concessions that would collectively reduce local residents’ property taxes by an estimated 4 percent.

Opinion: Pipeline project makes sense

Posted on December 10, 2014 |
By Martin Thompson



Although the argument against the pipeline centers on environmental concerns, the real reason may have to do with the disdain for fossil fuels felt by environmental groups and others. The Vermont Gas pipeline is a relatively small issue compared to the entirety of the existing U.S. natural gas pipeline system. Hence, opponents of this project have taken a well-anticipated route, claiming that it will harm the environment.

Opinion: State must fight natural gas plan

Posted on November 19, 2014 |
By John Madden



The nicest thing about a trip out of state is coming back to Vermont.

Recently there has been much advertising and sales of the idea that sacrificing the lives and property of Vermonters for cheap fuel from Canada (and not obeying Vermont law) is in the public good.

A current example of that concept is the building of an explosive gas storage and distribution network in Middlebury without the required-by-Vermont-law public hearing (30 V.S.A., Section 24B(4)(A)) and permit (Section 248(b)(5)).
