Liberty Utilities has proposed an 11-mile fracked gas pipeline in NH that would run along RT 12-A in Wst Lebanon to west of the Lebanon Green and north to downtown Hanover.
Community opposition is mounting!
In the past, “natural” (fracked) gas was widely viewed as a “bridge fuel” (bridge to renewable energy sources) because it burns cleaner than oil and coal and renewables were still developing. Energy efficiency measures and viable, widely available, renewable energy means we can stop expanding the use of fracked gas.
Hydraulic fractured (fracked) gas is methane, a very potent greenhouse gas that is released into the atmosphere not only as a combustible, but fugitive methane is released during drilling, extraction, transportation and through pervasive leaks in pipeline systems that are not considered a threat and therefore, not repaired.
Fracked gas expansion is a threat to our health, safety, aquifers, wildlife and climate. We have viable, economic options that are not being considered.
