Connecticut Gas Plant Explosion

I want to post an update that a gas plant in Middletown Connecticut has recently exploded, presumably when a gas line caught fire during testing.  At least two people have been reported dead.  I want to recommend readers check out Caroline Howe’s post on this, she is a climate activist who lives in Connecticut.  Here is an excerpt from her post…

“Fossil fuels are not safe. They are not safe for our planet, they are not safe for our communities, and they are not safe for the workers inside of their power plants. This is not the first power plant explosion, this will not be the last. It is time for America to commit to a clean and safe energy economy – where our friends and neighbors can work in green jobs that give good wages and safe working environments. My heart and prayers are with the workers at the Kleen Energy Plant and with their families — and with the future of our nation to not face such a tragedy again.”
