A disruption of natural gas flow from Canada put Maine, which relies heavily on natural gas to generate electricity, at risk, says a group that advocates for businesses that use a lot of energy. Does this show that Maine should have its own source of gas, name liquefied natural gas? There are proposals to build LNG terminals in Washington County. Does this situation mean that one or more of these projects should be permitted, despite objections from some local residents and the New Brunswick government? Should Maine move more quickly in building other forms of energy generation such as wind and tidal power?
A natural gas trap?
