About Us

Rethink Muskrat Falls is a movement stated to encourage discussion around the options for energy in Newfoundland and Labrador.  The founders of the original Facebook Group felt that there was gaps int he information being presented to the public, and certainly that the technical details of the project were over simplified or just not understood.

We decided to begin a discussion, share the information available and hopefully help people make informed decisions.

I am Denise Hennebury.  Resident of Mount Pearl and environmental educator.

I stated this blog to help broaden our reach.

  1. I’m a graduate student interested in Muskrat Falls and I was wondering whether there is a contact email address for the person who runs this blog?

  2. Existing dams, okay, we couldn’t stop them before the destruction was done. Now they generate relatively ‘green’ energy. New dams–think again.

    Renewable energy is the way of the future and this doesn’t include dams. Wind, solar, geothermal, MICRO hydro and other variations on the theme (still not convinced that tidal can be done without harm to aquatic life) are ALL AROUND US. Open your eyes everyone and look!

    Great examples are found in this CCNB video called Moving Forward http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4f_33afD0g&feature=plcp on alternative energy in NB. These small-scale examples of green energy are taking place in a leadership vacuum, with no incentives, funding even supportive policy.

    Gatting back to Muskrat Falls, we as humans have no right to take over all these wild spaces and kick First Nations and wildlife out, just so one province can profit from their destruction. This is the worst of colonialism all over again.

    Quebec, Maritimes don’t want your power generated on the backs of Muskrat Falls occupants. People, don’t fall for the green-washing.
