Pipeline Roundtable Discussion

Do You Have Questions or Concerns About the Proposed Gas Pipeline?

Come Meet Your Neighbors!

Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015, at 6 PM

How will the proposed Northeast Energy Direct Gas Pipeline impact the region?  Do we really need more gas?  Is natural gas truly a “bridge” fuel?  Is gas extracted by hydraulic fracturing really cleaner than coal?  Can renewable energy fit the bill?  Come hear the answers to these and other questions (your own!) from this distinguished roundtable of activists and experts, people who will be directly impacted by this project if it goes through — also known as, your neighbors.

This event is cosponsored by the Sunderland Energy Committee.
