Please sign the LNG petition below

Please sign the Save the Bay petition against a three story LNG terminal planned for Mount Hope Bay and pass the link on to others - especially those living in MA and RI. Here is what it says.
"The Hess LNG terminal proposal for Mount Hope Bay is ill-conceived, unnecessary and wrong for the Bay. It will become a dominant presence from the East Passage of Narragansett Bay to Fall River that is out of balance with the mixed uses we all enjoy today. Year-round LNG tanker traffic will cost jobs as it disrupts our marine and tourism industries. Required dredging will destroy critical habitat in Mount Hope Bay -- habitat that citizens have spent millions of dollars and more than two decades restoring. Check how we're doing; see who has signed."

As Jonathan Stone states this is simply the wrong location for this facility. It's bad for the environment, and its bad for the people who live here.
