Polar Beverages: Say no to NED

Dear Polar Beverages,

I am disappointed that your company is supporting the Northeast Energy Direct (NED) pipeline, proposed by Kinder Morgan/Tennessee gas. You can find the text of your letter here: http://www.kindermorgan.com/content/docs/PB_SupportLetter.pdf

Please reconsider your support for this pipeline. Please write a letter of OPPOSITION to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and please persuade the MA food association to change their stance and oppose it as well. You can write to FERC using this web address http://www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/ecomment.asp. Please let me know when you have done this so that I can publicly thank you on various social media sites. I plan to BOYCOTT YOUR BUSINESS until you change your stance on this pipeline. I usually spend between $5 and $10 a week on your products.

Here is why I am asking you to oppose the NED pipeline:

NED Might not Help Reduce Cost:

NED is NOT Environmentally Friendly

The MA food association support letter cited “cleaner” natural gas as a reason to support the Pipeline. However, NED is not more environmentally friendly than coal or other fossil fuels for these reasons.

I hope that you take the time to better educate yourself on the pros and cons of the NED pipeline. Please use these references for more information:

I am happy to have a meeting or call with you and/or your company representatives to discuss this further. The NED pipeline is a SERIOUS environmental issue. As a seller of healthy foods, I urge you to take the broader community health into account as you decide to oppose this pipeline.

Thank you
