THREAD: Trying to think of the top 5 conflicts/issues/scandals around the #Weymouth compressor station.

Not sure if 5 slots is enough. This thing is a real mess.

But here’s a go at it.

@FRRACS_MA @MothersOutFront @nathanpboston
5/ MA Gov. Charlie Baker has accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars from entities tied to and/or pushing Weymouth - lobbyists, corporations, banks, etc.

Link: littlesis.org/maps/3949-web-…
4/Baker is extremely cozy with Weymouth’s lobbyists & lawyers.

Want to know how cozy? ⬇️⬇️


3/Baker’s CEO allies at the Mass Competitive Partnership back Weymouth & some are set to profit from it.

Aaaaaand a former top Baker staffer is the head of the MCP.

MCP = small group of most powerful people in MA.


2/Baker’s Energy & Enviro Secretary left office & took a job with private consultant firm that works for Enbridge - the powerhouse fossil fuel company behind the compressor station.

It gets sketchy ⬇️⬇️⬇️

From @itai_vardi: desmogblog.com/2019/06/21/mas…

1/Top of the list: Charlie Baker & MA DEP completely botch the air permit process to the point where one MA rep says the granting of the permit has “compromise[d] the integrity of the DEP process.”

Again, from @itai_vardi at @DeSmogBlog ⬇️⬇️
I probably missed a lot.
