Don't scrub the Bow scrubber

February 2009
New Hampshire Business Review;2/13/2009, Vol. 31 Issue 4, p15
The author reflects on New Hampshire's transition to a clean energy that reduces the worst effects of climate change and dependency on foreign oil and gas. He muses on the "scrubber technology" that will significantly cut emissions of sulfur dioxide and mercury and will make the Merrimack Station the cleanest coal plants in the U.S. He comments that the choice is not about any energy development but it is between action and inaction of the state.
