S3:E8 - 53 Miles of Maine, Episode 5 of 5 - Bringing Two Sides Together

Welcome to the 5th and final episode of our series, 53 Miles of Maine, covering a very controversial transmission line to run through Maine carrying hydropower electricity from Canada into the New England grid that was approved by state and federal regulators but stalled by a pubic referendum.

Throughout this series, we have covered several different larger themes from this story that are playing out all over the country as it relates to our clean energy transition.  We encourage everyone to check those out if you haven't already.  

In this 5th and final episode, we have a special conversation I moderated between someone from each side of the debate over this project.  Sandra Howard and Anthony Moffa, who stand against and for the project respectively, agreed to sit down together to discuss these larger themes after hearing the first 4 episodes.  It is a rarity these days that we get people on opposite sides of any polarizing and emotional issue to sit down and talk, so I'm so grateful to both Sandra and Anthony for taking the time.

Our hope is that this can serve as a reminder that discussion and discord are so valuable in finding our way through this incredibly complex but equally critical transition off of fossil fuels in the years and decades ahead.
