THE COST OF THE PIPELINE

The Cost of The Pipeline is a well written and researched blog with the stated purpose to highlight the stories of many people who are opposing the PennEast pipeline, and to show the human cost this project is going to have on people in the region. The author has been scouring the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s web site dedicated to comments on this project and highlighting the comments  found to be most memorable, particularly ones that tell what this pipeline is going to do to people’s families, their properties, their lives, and in many cases their legacies. The blog is full of information that might help others gauge how this pipeline is going to impact them.
