The Globe wrote in its lead editorial on Sunday, November 16th: "This should not even be considered... A new coal-burning plant in the Northeast is a nonstarter."

And on Tuesday, November 18th, the Times editorialized that: "The new plant would be an enormous eyesore [and] would unleash a plume of pollutants endangering everyone downwind, including residents of Connecticut, Massachusetts and Maine."
