Boyd Science Center, Room 144

Common Ground, Plymouth State University’s environmental and social justice student organization, is hosting a program on tar sands in New Hampshire. The program is set for Thursday, November 21 at 7 p.m. in the Boyd Science Center, Room 144, on the PSU campus.
Many people think tar sands are a western issue, but New Hampshire residents should pay attention!

Come learn about this potential energy source, the implications of its extraction, processing, and use, and the possibility for piping it across northern New Hampshire.

Speaker Carol Foss is Director of Conservation at New Hampshire Audubon and will speak about the Portland-Montreal pipeline. The proposed transport of Alberta tar sands oil through this aging pipeline may have significant impacts for New Hampshire. The pipeline runs from Portland to Montreal through the Sebago Lake watershed, has multiple crossings of the Androscoggin River in Maine and New Hampshire, touches the White Mountain National Forest, and crosses the Connecticut River into Vermont.

This program at PSU is free and open to the public.
