A massive gas compression and storage facility has been proposed for the small town of Acushnet Massachusetts. In protest, local residents, lead by South Coast Neighbors United marched between two schools that would be close to the facility. Listen in as we hear voices from the march. (Special bonus: some whaling and literary history!)
The reading list:
- Moby Dick
- Jaws vs Moby Dick?
- Herman Melville crewed on the "Acushnet"
- WBUR's report on the Acushnet facility
- Spectra's description
- South Coast Neighbors United's description of the problem
- Where Moby Dick started: on the Whaleship Essex

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist that the United States put a price on carbon.
Thanks for listening.
