>> welcome to new hampshire's business, i'm fred kocher. there's a natural gas pipeline proposed, as you know, across southern new hampshire, 80 miles across the southern part of the state and there are 20 towns that are opposed and they're highly organizedment here they are, they are amherst, brookline, fits william, litchfield, london, mason, merrimack, new ipswich. temple, troy, winchester and windham, now, here is a map of that pipeline that enters from massachusetts around wind chester and goes across southern new hampshire and to pelham and
6:39 am
back into massachusetts at dracut. we did an interview with kinder morgan and this time we're going to talk to four of those opposed from for towns. tad with brookline, new hampshire, welcome. >> thank you. >> mark from milford. >> thank you. >> marilyn from hollis. >> thank you. >> and john kylie from temple. >> thank you. >> and the most basic question i could ask, you're saying that the kinder morgan pipeline is unnecessary, why? to each of you, but tad first. >> first off, i think it's important for us to acknowledge that it's critical for our region to address regions addressing electricity and they are a fundamental to our economy. that being said, we believe it's a critical question to ask whether or not the kinder morgan pipeline is the optimal solution
6:40 am
the answer to that is an unequivocal no because of better alternatives. >> we'll get to that. you're the administrator in brookline. mark from milford, same question. >> many groups are focused on the winter peak, high electricity prices during winter months when we have peak demand. >> that's 50 days out of the winter. the rest of the time, they're operating 50% of capacity. you have to ask yourself. where do we get the additional gas during those 50 days. there's a recent study that was referenced by the new hampshire pnc that stated the best approach towards solving the gas shortage is utilizing our existing regional liquefied natural gas infrastructure. two winters ago we experienced very high--
6:41 am
very high electricity prices. >> right. >> this past winter we used 32 billion cubic feet of lng. twice as much as we used in the prior winter. and our electricity prices went down. so, effectively, what the industry could do is create a liquefied natural gas pipeline by refilling the lng storage facilities during the winter months. so you are opposed, you're the town administrator of milford and your town is opposed. >> yes. >> marilyn you're with the pipeline awareness group. why do you think the pipeline is unnecessary? >> i would say that this is kinder morgan's export pipeline masquerading as a so-called solution to an energy cries is is.
6:42 am
>> the crisis that mark spoke about can be dealt with with liquefied natural gas. kinder morgan really needs to build this pipeline to get a lot of gas to dracut where it can hook up with the maritimes and new england to get up to canada where it can be processed for export. >> so you don't think we are going to get gas here in new hampshire? >> we're going to get very little. >> john kylie from temple. you're a-- on an advisory committee to the selectmen on the pipeline. >> correct. >> same question, why do you think it's unnecessary? >> well, when you look at the liberty utilities proposal now before the public utility commission, they're prnlging out 20 years and they're projecting that they're going to add type infrastructure distribution systems in many areas of our state. and even with those projections,
6:43 am
bringing or be buying 4% of the capacity of this pipeline. if, when you look beyond the state of new hampshire, and add up the other interested parties, utilities interested in buying this gas, you still only get a very small fraction of the gas that would be coming through a pipeline of this size. this is just a huge project, as marilyn said, to solve an export need and it's being camouflaged as a domestic pipeline. >> now, we're going to continue this interview at the segment at 8:40 this morning, also, but we're going to ask a separate question and they're going to respond to the question, if it's approved, what are the impacts going to be in new hampshire? so far now i want to thank my guests, tad putney of brookline, marilyn and john, we'll see you
6:44 am
amy: a spokesman for kinder morgan appeared in new hampshire's business two weeks ago. you can watch the interview right here on our website, wmur.com. >> now, meteorologist josh judge with your storm watch 9 forecast. josh: well, a good sunday morning, it's a chilly start out there for sure this morning as parts of northern new hampshire in the upper 20's at the moment, so some freezing going on in some parts of not only northern new hampshire, but well inland locations, for example, perhaps some upper valley locations, maybe some areas around the lakes region. you may have a little bit of lightly scattered frost in some of those locations as well. you can see the temperatures, 30's and 40's. in terms of cloud cover there's hardly any at the moment. a northeast wind may kick up clouds or a sprinkle in areas near the seacoast as we go through the morning hours. a few of the areas here, some
6:45 am
there, then turning sunnier throughout the day today. temperatures remain a little cooler because of that northeast wind flow around this area of high pressure. it's keeping the sunshine and weather away and it's part of deflecting away part of hurricane joaquin. the wind are coming around it like this off the ocean, keeping things a little bit cooler. here is the latest on that, it's beginning to real speed up. it's a major category 3 hurricane in terms of its forward motion. the dot is bermuda. it's a very close call for them. current conditions for them right now. top winds about 120 miles per hour, but it is moving to the northeast at 20 miles per hour as well, meaning it is really speeding up and that's often a case as storms begin to head in this direction and also as they begin to show early signs of weakening. as it pushes ahead. there is that close call with
6:46 am
today and then by tomorrow afternoon, it's getting close to us. tomorrow night and into early tuesday morning, that it makes its closest call to new england, but we are still a good 500 miles away from the storm. so the only effects for us would just be choppy surf on tuesday and then rockets out of here without any issue, as i mentioned, not a major issue for us. this graphic showing the strongest winds and that dot is bermuda, so they're going to be really glanced by some of the strongest winds in this hurricane later today, see, it doesn't come that close. those strong winds to us as it stays out to sea away from all u.s. interests. speaking of which, here is our interests. new hampshire, young, a few clouds around possible for the morning and mid day hours in southern and southeastern new hampshire because of the winds off the ocean. you may notice them start to billow up. a little breezy this morning,

>> welcome to new hampshire's business. i'm fred kocher. this is the second part of an interview we started at 6:40 on the opposition to the natural it was pipeline proposed for southern new hampshire. 20 communities are highly organized to oppose it and here they are. they are amhurst, fits william, greenville, hollis, hudson, merrimack, mason, new ipswich, richmond, windham and others.
8:23 am
from massachusetts, new hampshire, winchester to pelham and massachusetts to dracut. opposed to the pipeline, tad of brockline. marilyn lerner of hollis, and john kylie of temple. tad, let's start with one of the key questions that you're addressing. if this pipeline is constructed proposed now for 2017 if it's approved, the impacts you're concerned about, what are they? >> the most obvious first impact, fred, the fact that it would cut an 80 mile swath across a large portion of the state and that swath would be 150 feet wide. and frankly, we don't think, given some alternatives that are currently in place, that it's necessary. >> you're the town administrator in brookline. >> correct.
8:24 am
>> blasting, which is required to trench the pipeline, impacts water in the granite state and plus the leaks they're known to have. and any unanticipated problems could seriously i am tactful-- impact our water. that's not a risk we should be taking, no, we should not take it. >> and mark from milford, the impacts you're concerned about? >> fred, one thing we're concerned about, the ethics and legality of taking private land and public land owned by our towns or state of new hampshire by eminent domain. >> federal eminent domain. >> yes. >> you're town administrator of milford. >> yes. >> it's different in temple, because the pipeline doesn't go through our town, but you have a concern with a school in particular. >> the pipeline goes south of
8:25 am
the new hampshire-- or rather the temple border in the town of new ipswich. that's the site where the compressor station for the entire state of new hampshire would be siteed, it's a 41,000 horsepower that provides the psi that drives the gas through the pipeline on a daily basis. and these compressor stations release toxins, not in the event of an accident, but whenever they have excess pressure in the pipe, they open the valve and some of the releases are as short as a few minutes and some are substantially longer. >> that's close to the school? >> yes, they're releasing toxins, known for nose bleeds,
8:26 am
up to liver and other cancers. this would be very close to many homes, farms, but in particular, it would be a quarter mile from the temple elementary school. >> you're on the advisory committee to the select on the pipeline. >> correct. >> you acknowledge, i think all of you, that we need more energy in new hampshire. where should it come from? >> well, i think that one thing that people aren't realizing is the tremendous strides we're making in renewables. there's 5800 mega watts of electricity projects currently planned in the region and that accounts for 20% of our electric generation capacity. that's a meaningful number. and something that will certainly be helpful as we move forward. >> anybody else? >> the lng segment that i mentioned in the first segment, can provide the energy that we have at winter peek at savings
8:27 am
20-year period. >> additionally, there are several other large pipeline projects planned for the new england area, the gas that comes to dracut can come into new hampshire from one of the other pipelines. >> existing pipelines. >> yes. >> we don't need that. new hampshire is used as an energy corridor. >> i want to thank mark, marilyn, and we did interview represents from kinder morgan and this is the opposition. you can go online and see both interviews and both segments, 6:40 and 8:40, plus the segment with the kinder morgan vp. click on news then click on
