The Hartford Courant: LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Broadwater

Broadwater Will Provide Needed Energy
February 10, 2007

Yale University Professor Dolores Hayden offered an opinion piece representing the views of many of those opposed to the Broadwater liquefied natural gas facility proposed for Long Island Sound [Place, Feb. 4, “Broadwater: Floating Folly”]. It was heavy with exaggeration, half-truths and the scare tactics that have become a hallmark of the opposition to this project.

Shell U.S. Gas and Power (a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell) and TransCanada Pipelines are partners in the Broadwater project and there has been no attempt to hide that fact as Hayden suggests. read more

A SISTER OF JOSIEBETH FOROOZAN, the 26th Filipino abducted in Nigeria over the past two months, said yesterday her kidnappers claimed they lost her after she fought back while they were on a pumpboat and she jumped into the water.

The younger sister, Jane Gregorio, said her family believed that Foroozan was still alive, doubting sketchy reports reaching Manila that the 37-year-old mother of two may already be dead.

The kidnappers called up (Foroozans Iranian husband) to say that my sister fought back and jumped into the water. But knowing my sister, we believe she wouldnt do something like that, Gregorio told reporters at the Department of Foreign Affairs. read more

Published: Feb 10, 2007

The deal which exempts oil and gas companies from royalty payments is a disgrace and needs to be immediately renegotiated, one of the country’s largest trade unions has said.

The Amalgamated Transport and General Workers Union (ATGWU) is supporting a demonstration to highlight the issue of how the Government has granted energy companies licences to explore off the coast of Ireland.

The demonstration is being organised by the Shell to Sea campaign which has been opposed to plans by Shell to build a gas refinery at Bellanaboy, Co Mayo. read more
