    True cost of pipeline

    Vermont Gas never tires of touting the benefits of natural gas to heating oil, but isn’t it time to move beyond fossil fuels? Gas is still 70 to 80 percent as dirty as oil, even by Vermont Gas’ own estimates. Why aren’t we comparing gas to solar, or gas to biomass? Investing in a high-capacity natural gas pipeline that serves only a few thousand homes fails to solve our long-term addiction to fossil fuels. Thankfully, neighbors and organizations are revealing the true costs of this pipeline before we get stuck with 50 years of fracked gas shoved down our throats.
