More pipelines lock us into more fracking! Get the basics here!
Gas Pipeline Educational Forum
There are numerous pipeline expansion plans currently undergoing approval at the federal and state level, yet many Connecticut residents are unaware of the costs associated with these projects.
Please attend our forum if you want answers to the following questions:
1. How will pipeline expansions affect my town & neighborhood?
2. How will the cost of these new projects affect my energy bill?
3. Is methane, or fracked, natural gas, really a bridge fuel?
4. What are the health and safety impacts for local residents?
5. What is the effect on the environment of piping fracked gas under rivers, through wetlands, and across sensitive ecosystems?
6. How does leaked methane impact climate change?
7. More gas = more fracking = more toxic, radioactive fracking waste. What does this mean for CT?
There is significant concern about the effects of these construction projects on the economy, environment, health and safety of the citizens of Connecticut, and development of low carbon, renewable energy alternatives.
This event is free and open to the public.
