Bill Cosby supports march against Massachusetts pipeline
Bill Cosby and his wife call it 'astounding' that all six New England governors support the natural gas pipeline. Kinder Morgan told Bill Cosby it plans to survey his Massachusetts land for the pipeline.
The couple, who own hundreds of acres of protected land in Shelburne Falls, about 100 miles west of Boston, have been opposed to the pipeline since the company notified them last winter of plans to survey their land.
Through a spokesman, the couple said it was "astounding" that New England's six governors support the proposal, which they said shows "disrespect for humans, flora and fauna."
Supporters of the $3.75 billion Northeast Pipeline Extension Project say it will provide clean-burning natural gas to the Northeast U.S.
The Massachusetts PipeLine Awareness Network organized the relay march in the state and plan a July 30 Statehouse rally.
