Deerfield MA “Bans” Kinder Morgan TGP Pipeline – Or So They Claim

In September MDN pointed out the antics of the silly nutters in the Town of Deerfield, Massachusetts. The county Board of Health claims they have “unlimited power” to stop the Tennessee Gas Pipeline from coming through their township, if they decide to exercise their impressive (super) powers (see MA Town Health Board Claims “Unlimited Power” to Stop TGP).
