    Great picture Steve. Give a very good feel for just how horrible it truly is.

    This photo illustrates what the word “Stunning” means. Bravo Steve!

    So–what happens when we have a heavy rainfall on each of these 21 pads??

    • Suze says:

      Exactly! Fast moving stormwater run off = erosion, silting up of stream headwaters and pristine streams, killing aquatic life & habitat, FLOODING… And, since these sites and their access roads are now compacted areas, they will not absorb water to refresh our ground water / wells. All of that stormwater will run off…and run off FAST! Excellent question!

    Well, doesn’t that looks completely natural….. I am glad they assured us that things will look the same as before when all is said and done…. All natural mountain tops have whatever this is on top and 4 lane highways carved into the sides all the way to the top and across it. Yep no damage what so ever…..

    Great photos, Steve. They make my stomach turn. I am so sorry for Vermonters. The Dalai Lama is in Chicago tomorrow on a panel of Nobel Peace Laureates entitled, “Speak Up, Speak Out”. You have certainly done your part in that regard. I wish more Americans would avail themselves of our precious democracy before it whittles away to nothing and we end up with even more environmental deaths like this one.

    Thank the “green” movement for this.
