Hess LNG Pulls The Plug

Today, Hess LNG finally withdrew its ill-conceived proposal for an LNG terminal in Mount Hope Bay. This is welcome news, and good for everyone who loves the Bay.

That project was wrong from the start. Thanks to the efforts of so many of you, we convinced the world of that. This outcome is a credit to patience, persistence, and informed public advocacy. We never stopped fighting for the Bay and we never will.

Now, we turn our attention to the positive and constructive work of restoring water quality, fisheries, and wildlife habitat in Mount Hope Bay and the Taunton River. Here's to a more hopeful future...

Thanks and congratulations to all who had hand in this victory! JT
