Episode Description:

Guests: Massachusetts State Senator James 'Jamie' Eldridge, Vice-Chair of the Senate Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change and Member of the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy; Jim O’Reilly, Director of Public Policy at Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP)--Join the Host & Producer of The Legal Edition, Attorney Mary Kay Elloian for In-Depth Discussion on Current Energy Policies & Strategies for Responsible Energy Generation & Delivery (Roundtable Discussion).

An-In-Depth Roundtable Discussion will focus on Energy Policies and Energy Needs.

Discussion on placing a high-volume, highly volatile 'fracked gas' pipeline through sensitive wetland and drinking water areas, near watersheds, schools, businesses without definitive studies on the necessity, and without truly weighing all the risks.

Other Issues for Assessment: Vulnerability and Risk of Terrorism, Catastrophe Accidents, Putting More Fossil Fuel into the Atmosphere, Hastening Climate Change, Diminishing Investment in Renewable Energy--while proposing an 'Unprecedented Tariff' in United States History. Such a Tariff as proposed by the energy company, would be Paid for by US Electric Rate Payers for the Installation of a Pipeline 'No One is Sure is Needed and 'No One But the Energy Company Seems to Want'. Also discussed the real possibility of US fracked gas being sold abroad for higher energy company profits--with a delivery system paid for by US customers.

Analysis on how Implementing a Responsible Energy Policy and Renewable Energy Generation Infrastructure can be a model for the entire Nation. Discussion of taking private land and how such a pipeline could diminish land and home values affecting their saleability, insurability, and jeopardizing covenants of mortgaged property, as well as health and safety and terrorism risks. Also discussed solutions to make states fully reliable energy driven--creating jobs, saving the environment and making responsible investments in states and communities.
