About 100 people gathered for three hours on Saturday in the grandstand of the former Green Mountain Race Track to hear from developers of a proposed 29-megawatt biomass power generation and wood pellet manufacturing facility, and to ask questions of their own. Full Story

Please continue to dial your state reps including the secretary of state.

The models they are using are not correct for the town of pownal

The perpetual pollution will hang on to the hills on almost everyday subjecting the residents to particulates 24/7.

Phone and email the state level. If MA figured it out, VT should be able to also.

BioMass is NOT green. It's pure pollution that fell through the cracks as green.

I didn't know intelligence stopped at state borders. Let's remember that opposition to biomass does not indicate support for coal.

I think Vermont people are smart enough to make good decisions when presented with accurate, logical facts. Apparently, you believe in the head firmly planted between your legs approach. Works for some! At least you won't be breathing the biomass emissions!

Get real, Vermonter. Don't hide behind the protection of a online ID.
