Community Zoom Conversations: Meg Sheehan and Sandra Howard
Meg Sheehan, Coordinator of the North American Megadam Resistance Alliance (NAMRA) will dispel the myth that hydropower is “Clean and Green” and megadams and their transmission corridors have direct and irreversible impacts on our rivers and forests and contribute to the ongoing cultural genocide of Indigenous communities in Canada to supply Massachusetts’ with 1,200 megawatts of hydropower from Eastern Canada. Sandra Howard, Director, Say NO to NECEC will speak about the CMP transmission corridor’s direct and irreversible impacts on Maine’s environment, wildlife habitat, wetlands and waterways, recreational tourism, and biomass industry. In addition, this project will not reduce global CO2 emissions. This will also be broadcast via Facebook Live here.
