I agree that fossil fuels have their place, but am concerned about the whole "co-location" issue and its effect on the full length of this pipeline. We don't know much about this, but common sense would dictate that a high volume, commercial gas pipeline pumping thousands of cubic feet of gas running a minimum distance of 50' along high voltage electrical grids is dangerous, and our laws and statues regarding safety could never have anticipated this.
More concerning is that there are electro-magnetic fields around these electrical lines that can behave in unpredictable ways, influenced by solar activity, seismic movement, terrain, atmospheric conditions- from what I've read.
It seems that pipelines themselves can be influenced by proximity to electricity, as well as the gas(es) they carry.
It's concerning that this company is seeking to locate along these grids, because this will spread accountability among two legal entities when there are problems and this seems like a huge cost savings for the pipeline, but a very volatile situation for citizens all over Massachusetts.
Co-location isn't mentioned on any of their customer websites.
I'm remembering the 1960-70"s and those who survived LSD. No beds for them, those who made it... made it, those who didn't... I think it is high time we gave parents back their right to discipline their children. You want to take back the streets as we did before? We also need more police presence, stop slapping these dealers and users on the wrist and you just might see lesser crime.
I totally agree with the Recorder, there editorial was right on the mark. The comments by Maryellen were mostly sarcastic and I assume were meant to be but were offensive and inappropriate.
I agree with "robcat",The Recorder seems to be in the business of creating news right now, rather than reporting news. I think the two front page articles on Friday and Saturday (essentially the same article, printed once in an unacceptable style and then again in a more professional manner, although still largely an OPINION piece that should have appeared on the opinion pages). Like it or not, Greenfield Recorder, the majority of Greenfield voters did elect these officials and many of us believe that the Town Council was not plotting against us, but rather soliciting the opinion of a community member who is very involved and active, but not an actual enemy of society.
Please stick to reporting (given the first article, I would like to further say, please work to bring up the quality of that reporting) and stop trying to create news based on your opinion.
You nailed it, Maryelen. Very bald-faced propagandizing and poor journalism on the part of the recorder- especially their editorializing. Disgusting. Disappointing. Inappropriate…. why not just report the news/ and interview people?
The Recorder has lowered itself waist deep in the big muddy wetlands. ...(full comment)
Wow, this is less an op-ed than a stirring declaration of self, circles and community. Joshua has hit the nail on the head defining his generation in always that I have never before heard expressed. I hope this piece gets legs because it needs to be heard further than just these pages. If America fails the O-Generation, they will create their own reality and all the power to them. Hopefully they will form a more just, equable and cooperative society that the current one trying to crush them. ...(full comment)
This is a truly good site post. Not too many people would actually, the way you just did. I am really impressed that there is so much information about this subject that have been uncovered and you’ve done your best, with so much class. If wanted to know more about green smoke reviews, than by all means come in and check our stuff.
