Fracking in Mass?

From Curt Hoffman:
In my local paper (Middlesex News) today there was an extended editorial on the proposed Kinder Morgan natural gas pipeline, which would run across the northern border of Massachusetts, right in the area where Peter has been recently finding Native sacred sites.  There is some opposition to it (http://www.nofrackedgasinmass.org/pipeline-maps/) on environmental grounds, but unless MHC changes its tune on these sites quickly they are likely to be destroyed without environmental review.  Something to keep an eye on!

The pipe seems to mostly follow the road in Middlesex.

But maybe not in Worcester Co, or further west.

The plan does put a pipe across Blood Hill. There is some good stuff up there which, as far as I can tell, does not get hit by the planned pipe route. Definately something to worry about.

It comes through my area in NY, too.
