Winn challenged public assertions that natural gas is cleaner and cheaper than other forms of fuel.
"I would make the argument natural gas isn't clean, isn't cheap and we don't need the extra capacity," he said.
The Tennessee Gas Pipeline already carries 43 percent of the U.S. northern market, and if it passes 60 percent customers can expect to start paying the high prices that are common in Europe and Asia, Winn said.
He conceded that natural gas is cleaner than home heating oil but said it can create as much CO2 as other forms of fuel such as coal and oil when used in electrical plants.
"When somebody says natural gas is cheap, you have to ask compared to what," Winn said.
He also questioned whether the ultimate goal of the pipeline is to export natural gas.
The company has said the pipeline will create 3,000 jobs but even that isn't as good as advertised, Winn said.
"They also say in the same sentence it will be during peak construction," he said.

About 50 people showed up Tuesday for a presentation by Bruce Winn of the Berkshire Environmental Action Team, and Attorney Katy Eiseman, of No Fracked Gas in Mass on the proposed pipeline at the Chesterfield Community Center.
...
Winn said environmental concerns related to fracking include the contamination of ground water, wastewater disposal, leaks and explosions along the pipeline as well as the immense amount of water needed for the fracking process.
Winn also noted that one of the most common misconceptions about the pipeline is that it would provide an abundant source of home heating fuel for residents in the state.
"That is just not true. Home heating is definitely not what is driving this project. There is already plenty of natural gas available for home heating," Winn said. He maintains the pipeline would instead fuel gas-fired electric power generation facilities.
Winn said it is entirely conceivable that natural gas from this project would be sold to Canada and countries abroad, as prices for natural gas in European and Asian markets are double and triple the cost of natural gas in the U.S. This he said, gives natural gas companies a large financial incentive to sell their product overseas.
Winn contends investing in additional natural gas projects will hurt the development of other renewable energy sources and energy efficiency solutions in the long term. He said the average fracking well is a non-sustainable short-term resource.
"Why would we do that when we could invest in more reliable and more sustainable energy sources like wind, hydro, and solar," said Winn.
