Welcome to my followers. I have yet to switch over to weebly.com. I was shocked & pleased to notice people are still reading my work. Thank you a.k.a. Nakummek in Inuktitut. I am blessed and grateful. (Showing my age, the jumprope song ran through my head, “Not last night but the night before, 24 robbers came knocking on my door,” when I thought of this title. Note, I keep a sense of humor in this wacky world.)
I am getting ready for tomorrow’s 9 to 9:30 a.m. speech by Secretary Richard K. Sullivan, Jr. at University of Massachusetts Amherst. The link is http://www.massenergyconf.org/
I’m happy my alma mater is going to host this one-day event. The world is not getting any better. Climate change is real and newsworthy.
I am not director or head of a municipality or an energy official, obviously, though I do believe it should be covered to the best of my ability. My gear is packed.
I was alerted to this event from NoFrackedGasInMass.org email and am happy to be on their mailing list. They’ve worked hard to help raise awareness and collaborate with other non-profit agencies & concerned citizens to stop KinderMorgan Inc.(KMI), Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co., El Paso Pipeline (EPB) from installing a liquid natural gas (LNG) pipeline from coming across Massachusetts.
I have kept up-to-date on Twitter in between life’s pleasant journeys about the pipelines. Please check my tweets @FayeAlkiewicz for articles. And feel free to follow me, if not already doing so. I do receive daily Seeking Alpha emails specifically on KMI, KMP and EPB. An easy find. Currently, they are down 36 cents, up 21 cents and down 12 cents respectively. It seems they’re not doing well.
The variety of guests seems to be well-presented for interested attendees. I definitely want to sit in on some of the panels. Unfortunately, I missed the lunch sign-up. Note, I couldn’t help but notice the typo for Mayor Martin of Greenfield on their web site. (An occupational hazard.)
Anyways, I did some research on Secretary Sullivan and found the 14-page pdf http://www.mass.gov/eea/docs/eea/eea-2013-2015-strategic-plan-17-january-2013.pdf I am curious what he will declare. I’m quite interested about page 11, under the Theme “Sustainable Economic Development.”
More will be revealed, I must slumber to be on time. Happy reading and more later.
