Happening Now

Today, hundreds of people have put their bodies on the line at Seneca Lake - including our own Wes Gillingham - for protesting a proposed expansion to natural gas storage, New York was met with exciting news! Arlington Storage Co., a subsidiary of Crestwood Midstream Partners, is abandoning controversial plans to expand natural gas storage in salt caverns along Seneca Lake.

This speaks volumes to the dedication to our land and commitment to a better future that New Yorker's keep in our hearts and our actions,” said, Wes Gillingham.  “With the current Federal giveaway to the Oil and Gas industry, New York stands out as a place where people are making a difference locally against the fossil fuels gang that has national implications. The multiple victories over greedy pipeline proposals and now this is making room for us to invest in a renewable future. The future of New York looks much better today!”

In case you missed it in all the hubub around the state budget, the Catskills Region received $7.35m in funding!!!  These resources will go to fight invasive species, improve trails and outdoor recreation, protect our vibrant forests, and support our communities.  Our thanks goes out to Governor Cuomo, the New York State Senate and Assembly, and to all of you--our work together made this possible.

Today’s a hard day. Our president just released an executive order that puts our lives at risk so that his cronies in the fossil fuel industry can make another buck—he’s giving away our clean air, clean water, and hard fought climate change regulations for profit.

But we have an opportunity to fight climate change here at home. With one phone call, you can make a difference—call Governor Cuomo and tell him to keep fighting back against President Trump’s lunacy by keeping climate programs and funding in the New York State budget (1-518-474-8390).
