Natural gas biz in the pipeline

The State in which protects birds and other wildlife from the evils of wind turbines, the State in which protects its little fishies from the evils of hydroelectric power or the rancid emissions from wood generation plants????? This is the State that's going to allow a Natural Gas Compression Station to be built????? You're outta your fcking mind if you think this is going to happen.....
There are no such compression stations in the State of Vermont and the one used to transport gas to Milton is in Canadia.... Why??? Because compression stations are needed approximately every 50 miles which is about the distance from Milton Vermont to Canadia.....
When natural gas leaves a compression station it's about 95% percent pure by volume.... When it reaches the next compressor station it has started to liquify and goes through a series of filters to remove as much liquid as possible.... It's what is in this liquid removed from this gas, that will bring this little endeavor to a screeching halt in Tree Hugger USA.... Anybody ever watch the movie Erin Brockovich???? That polluted water is from a natural gas compression station feeding a power plant.....
I would say the chances for this project to succeed are about the same as building an atomic power plant on Pleasant Street in Bennville, Vermont.....
Oh and did I mention the fact that it makes the noise of a DC-9 at full throttle, 24 hours a day????????

Where can one find the sources of your info? We've come along way since the Brockovich movie ( how much of that was fiction?)
Anyone who believes wind turbines kills birds and bats, destroys habitat for bears and other natures creatures, I've got this swamp for sale

Sources of info???? It's called an engineering degree from the University of Pittsburgh and 13+ years working as a subcontractor
for the natural gas industry.... Is that enough????
The most dangerous element in this industry is not in the drilling, it's in the transporting via the Natural Gas Super Highway... Temperatures have to be strictly monitored as well as the amount of moisture buildup within the pipes.... The failure to do so is what happened with PG&E in California.... You're dealing with a 36" stainless steel lined pipe, loaded with 1500psi... To say that you can transport that natural gas 100's of miles without picking up the slightest bit of contamination is ridiculous.... Contamination and moisture buildup within those pipes work like a sand blaster and start to breakdown the stainless steel.... When you breakdown stainless steel you get particles of Hexavalent Chromium, the compounds responsible for the lawsuit in that movie....
Yes the compression stations remove these partials and unwanted liquids from the gas, BUT, what is Billy Bob doing with that unwanted muck????? Ten gallons of this shit in the wrong hands could make allot of people very sick if it gets into the water supply.....
Was the movie exaggerated, who knows.... You have to ingest pure Hexavalent chromium to become deathly ill and the jury is still out on the levels considered dangerous if they should find their way to a water supply.... BUT, how do you come up with 650 plaintiffs, all suffering from the same ailments in that little piss ant town, close to that PG&E plant???? That's a fact, not an exaggeration.....
We've come along way since the Brockovich movie?????

UPDATE: I was in Pittsburgh yesterday playing golf with a few friends who work for Mark West.... They confirmed my comments, there are no natural gas compression stations in Vermont or New Hampshire, the only two states in the country without any.... Maine just completed the installation of four new stations for a total of eight, drawing gas from Canadia.....
Now for the humor portion of this future venture....
The compression station in Canadia which supplies the only pipeline into Vermont, exploded back in Dec 2000....
