Dr. Terence Cuneo and Kari Cuneo of Williston talk about how the fracked gas pipeline in Vermont has negatively impacted their lives.
Terence and Kari Cuneo of Williston, Vermont discuss the State of Vermont’s threat to seize their land by eminent domain to accommodate the Vermont Gas (VGS) fracked gas pipeline extension through Addison County. They bring us up to date on their problems with the Vermont Department of Public Services and how that agency dealt with the landowners’ right to resist the extension of the fracked gas pipeline onto their properties. Questions raised and answered in this discussion: Does the VGS project make financial sense? Is it good state policy? Does it make ethical sense?
