Whitewater Rafting in the Kennebec Gorge
Susan Ely, from the Natural Resource Council of Maine, is joining the Sierra Club and explains why the 145 mile transmission project is a financial scam by CMP will do nothing to reduce emissions and will destroy much of the wilderness of Maine. It is very clear that CMP is trying to usurp large amounts of cash from the ratepayers and taxes of Maine for a project that has no redeeming value. We have to strike back NOW to make sure this CMP boondoggle never gets built. Remember in November that elections have consequences. We have been fortunate to have LePage for the last eight years and we need to remember that whoever comes next has the same mindset.
While I wholeheartedly agree with Susan, there are deeper rooted reasons why the project should not be built. The whole scam of trying to make "clean" energy has led to us spending trillions of dollars and getting NOTHING in return. There are no rules to make Canada NOT use fossil fuels to fill in where needed for both domestic and foreign supplies of energy. Destroying our landscape from the Appalachian Trail to The Kennebec Gorge is useless and destructive for absolutely no reason.
