Informational Picket Slated Friday for Proposed Pipeline Through Rensselaer County

From a media advisory:

There will be an informational picket line held by citizens opposed to the "Northeast Energy Direct Project" Friday, Aug. 28 at 12-1 pm in front of the  Kinder Morgan Co. office at 137 North St. Pittsfield, Ma. KinderMorgan is the parent company of Tennessee Gas Pipeline which is proposing a massive 428 mile 1460 PSI fracked gas pipeline beginning in Pa. and traversing New York, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Many western Ma and nearby Rensselaer County, NY communities would be negatively impacted in terms of health, safety and the environment. A large percentage of this gas will probably be shipped overseas and none of it will be used in New York; some of the property to be traversed would be taken by eminent domain. There is even an attempt to have a large portion of this proposal paid for by charging electrical utility users in New England.
