Suck it econuts, Spectra Energy clears major hurdle for NJ-NY natural gas pipeline

Well whaddaya know, sanity from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Spectra Energy cleared an environmental hurdle in its plan to build a $1.2 billion pipeline that would bring natural gas from New Jersey to Manhattan.

Building and operating the approximately 16-mile (26- kilometer) project would have a “less-than-significant” environmental impact with mitigation measures in place, staff of the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said in a report issued today.

“Less-than significant” is of course bureaucrat-speak for “you’ll never notice it.” Because until Barry figures out how to turn algae and pixie dust into energy we’ll need fossil fuels, and really, who’s gonna wait around for him anyway?
