I am quite concerned that money that should go to local communities and their specific needs is being funneled into a single regional project only for the purpose of propping up fossil fuel extraction. This is ludicrous. Following the bleak result of the environmental impact of such a project, we all know that fossil fuel extraction is no longer economical, let alone damaging to our environment and to the health of the people in these communities. We need different priorities that put the community of people ahead of businesses who cling to expensive and polluting sources of energy. I strongly oppose any funds being submitted to such a arcane project that will literally go to waste in a few years. Let's move to more sustainable projects that provide healthy environmental impacts for future generations. Thank you.
