Friends of Merrymeeting Bay Endorses Yes on 1

Friends of Merrymeeting Bay

Odds are you've been beseiged daily for weeks on Maine's Question 1. FOMB encourages a Yes Vote against the CMP corridor for many reasons from habitat loss to fishery destruction and exacerbation of climate change from massive circum-polar reservoirs including those of Hydro Quebec.

Back in 2010 we intervened in opposition to "Corridor Version 1.0" the Maine Power Reliability Program, which really was about transmission (with a differnt name to avoid more environmental scrutiny) and a project FOMB chair Ed Friedman characterized as a "wolf in sheep's clothing."

We oppose these massive projects not because they carry power elsewhere, but for their many negative environmental and cultural effects. As our various newsletter articles and speaker presentations have articulated, it's fair to say "the only thing green about big hydro and mega dams are the hundred dollar bills coming out of their turbines."

Hopefully you will ignore the scary hype and Vote Yes for the environment on November 2.
