In her Boston Herald column Thursday, Virginia Buckingham, wote;
We’ll fry if we don’t get energized
The part about Cape Cod went like this;
...Well you can flip off every light switch in Belmont and beyond between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m., Gov, and we still won’t be prepared energy-wise for the economic growth we hope is coming our way. Still, Romney is kowtowing to the NIMBYs opposing the Fall River LNG project and Cape Wind. He’s been supportive of the Outer Brewster Island project, but his appointees are already acting like he’s a lame duck by undermining it.
Projects like these are controversial and hard to site because no one wants them in their back yard. My town’s awash with bumper stickers featuring the Salem power plant - which Romney once said could “kill people” - with the catchy little phrase “I’d rather be breathing.”
Never mind that the stickers are on the bumpers of gas-guzzling SUVs. No one connects the dots. Kind of like the Legislature.
The rest of the column here is well worth the reading, and you may comment below.
