Save the Bay announces LNG opposition campaign

November 28, 2009 - Save the Bay (STB) announces a $12,000 media blitz against an LNG facility  planned for Narragansett Bay. Click on the STB link below to study the facts, sign and circulate a petition, write your congressman, show up and speak at meetings and in general spread the word.  Jonathan Stone, executive director of STB,  notes that "a strong public showing is one of the ways the LNG proposal could be stopped." This campaign is timed to prepare the State of RI and its citizens for a forthcoming period of open public comment.
"How can two decades of hard work by thousands of dedicated citizens who have fought for the Taunton River and Mount Hope Bay be so easily discounted in order to accommodate a project that appears to benefit only a private company?" John Torgan, Biologist and Baykeeper STB
Locally, Save Bristol Harbor is organizing a supplemental movement to work in tandem with STB to be announced shortly.  On December 14, there will be a meeting in Somerset MA where Weavers Cove Energy will be going before the local Somerset Conservation Commission at 6: 30 pm.
