Assuming the project would cost $2.5 billion (2010 dollars) in capital costs, the project was suggested to just barely pass muster. I want Muskrat Falls to make sense. Reading that analysis just puts in perspective how badly it does not.
I’ve been super selfish the last few days; LGW is being good about it, but I can’t imagine that I’ve been easy to live with as blow after blow after blow rained down on the heads of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians over the course of this week. I’ve been trying to engage. I’m on the tweeterbox watching #nlpoli; I’m […]
