Maine Compass: What Hydro-Quebec gets wrong -
Hydro-Quebec’s claim that — as paraphrased by Portland Press Herald Staff Writer Edward D. Murphy — the electricity they would send south is “produced with none of the carbon emissions blamed for global warming” is dead wrong, directly contradicted by scientific research sponsored by Hydro-Quebec itself. I care deeply about aggressively addressing climate change, and I agree with your Editorial Board (Our View, Dec. 9) that the most important question in evaluating the proposed transmission line to Massachusetts is whether it will reduce total greenhouse-gas emissions.
