A 21st century bard

Earth On Fire: An energy crossroads

Regional environmentalists scored a huge victory last week. After years of protesting energy giant Kinder Morgan Inc.’s proposed natural gas pipeline that would have crossed though eastern New York, northwestern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, community activists successfully exerted enough pressure on state and federal lawmakers to publicly oppose the 188-mile pipeline, which ultimately led […]
