As the hardreading staff noted yesterday, a cabal of tree-huggers called Consumers for Sensible Energy has been running this ad in the Boston Globe.
The objective is to derail Spectra Energy’s Access Northeast project, “which would expand and add new pipeline from West Boylston to Weymouth and down to Acushnet. It calls for the construction of a massive liquefied natural gas facility and new compressor station on the South Coast and South Shore.”
But #StopThePipelineTax has so far been a bust, drawing “No Results” a day after the group’s first ad ran, and only this a day (and another ad) later.
So, to recap: One-half of the responses to this six-figure ad campaign have come from . . . us.
Consumers for (All Those Dollars and No) Sensible Energy has scheduled a State House rally at 11:30 today.
We’ll let you know how it goes.
