Visiting your favorite outdoor haunts this time of year opens up a whole new world. Since the leaves have mostly fallen, those familiar places look very different from their summer selves.
And now, perhaps more than in any other season, it’s easy to see the tremendous impact that towers up to 135 feet tall (more than twice the size of the average telephone pole) would have on the views you love.
That’s why we want to remind you to sign AMC’s petition. Please, speak up for the scenic views of the Northeast.
Tell the Department of Energy that the visual impacts of Northern Pass need to be considered in the Environmental Impact Study.
When you do, you’ll give a great holiday gift to the White Mountain National Forest and all the other beautiful areas in New Hampshire that would be affected by the project. And you’ll help send the message that we won’t tolerate projects that treat our public lands as anything less than the extraordinary places they are.
More than 2,000 people have signed so far. And you can help us get to a nice round 3,000! It’s not too late for you to add your name to the petition and tell your friends to do the same.
On December 14th, AMC will file our petition with the DOE. With your name added to it, they’ll hear us loud and clear.
Thank you from all of us at AMC, including your fellow members, and from the millions of others who are awed, inspired, and delighted by the one-of-a-kind views of the Northeast.
