Happening Now

The wait is over! The bill expanding the Empire State Film Production Tax Credit to the Catskills and Hudson Valley has been delivered to Governor Cuomo for his signature. Now is the time to call Governor Cuomo at 518-474-8390 and ask him to approve the expansion of the bill (if you choose option 2 and you can just leave a message.)

We may be only days away from Spectra Energy’s high pressure, fracked-gas Algonquin Incremental Market (AIM) Pipeline going into operation. Mountainkeeper is working to stop the build out of all gas infrastructure projects because they will tie us to dirty fossil fuels at a time when we need to build a clean, renewable energy future. AIM is particularly egregious because as the pipeline spans three New York counties, it crosses two fault lines, passes only 105 feet from critical Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant Safety infrastructure, and travels just 400 feet from an elementary school. 

Bomb trains carrying massive amounts of fracked oil from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota and tar sands from Canada, are cutting across New York State on the way to the Port of Albany and nearby transfer yards, and then down the Hudson River corridor to East Coast refineries.This boom in crude oil transportation is raising serious public safety and environmental concerns due to the extreme volatility of Bakken crude, the sheer volume of oil being transported, and the poor safety record of the type of tank cars used to carry most of this oil.
