You know that new housing development that just sprung up in a Massachusetts city suburb? Don’t buy a house in it, because chances are they won’t be getting new natural gas pipes run to them any time soon. That is, if a group of local boards of health have anything to say about it. A group of 77 local boards recently sent a letter to Mass. Gov. Charlie Baker asking him to stop cold any new natural gas projects until after a full blown study is done on the “safety” of natural gas infrastructure. They’re attempting to use the Columbia Gas of Massachusetts tragedy north of Boston in mid-September to block new gas infrastructure (see Local NatGas Pipes Explode Near Boston Killing 1, Injuring 25). It’s a naked attempt to shut down new natgas pipelines–anywhere, for any reason. And that includes small delivery lines to local homes and businesses. Fascism raises its ugly head once again in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts.
