When sued by Spitzer and the DEC, Why was LIPA and KeySpan represented by the same law firm and LIPA ratepayers were made to foot the bill for KeySpan too

That is because LIPA assumes all of National Grid & Keyspan libilities. They could kill us and their employees and the ratepayers would be responsible

YES. LIPA d.b.a.LILCO which gets most of it's electricity from the 53 power plants on LI are VERY dirty. Northport Power Plant being being one of the worst in the Northeast and possibly Nationally as well as Portjefferson the second. Northport Can produce between 60,000 and 100,000 tons of NOx and CO2 and what ever else is in the oil a waste and they have a separate wast oil tank the has stuff in it that nobody wants to be near. Their was a study done not too long ago in USA TODAY about air quality and Suffolk did VERY POORLY. LA was in better shape then we were, to me that is sad. We have old dirty "clunkers" that are fixed with "band aid's" they are filthy to work in and run filthy as well but as long as quarterly earnings are good they do not care they would rather pay the fines. $45 per ton up to 6000 tons then after that it's a free for all where they do not have to pay fines. If they did our State would not have a budget problem.
