Help Us Go to Court Against Constitution Pipeline!

email_sidebar_constitution_rise_from_dead.pngJust four months ago, you and I won a dramatic victory when New York State dealt an apparent death blow to the Constitution Pipeline by denying it a crucial water quality certification. But the Constitution Pipeline Company LLC -- the energy giant behind this fossil fuel monstrosity -- will not let the project die. The company has just filed suit in the U.S. Court of Appeals, challenging not only the State’s decision but its very right to stop the pipeline.

Catskill Mountainkeeper has moved swiftly to intervene in this pivotal case and ensure that New York State’s historic decision is upheld. Please make a special tax-deductible contribution right now to help us wage this all-important fight for our environment, our communities, and our climate.

Millenium Expansion Proposed for Sullivan and Delaware Counties

Activists needed to fight the Millennium Pipeline Company’s proposed Eastern System Upgrade Project, which poses an unacceptable risk to people, homes, and businesses right here in the Catskills!

This proposed expansion includes two new noisy, dirty and dangerous 22,400 horsepower natural gas compressor stations. One is proposed in Sullivan County, in the Town of Highland, and the other would be an addition to the existing Hancock Compressor Station, in Delaware County.
 

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO STOP THE EXPANSION! We need as many people as possible to go the extra step and INTERVENE in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) regulatory process to make sure our voices are heard! The deadline to intervene is Thursday, September 1, 2016, just a few days away, so I hope you will act right now.

Breaking news on extending the film tax credit to the Catskills and Hudson Valley

We're so pleased with the wonderful news that last night the New York State Assembly extended the Empire State Film Production Tax Credit Program to the Catskills and Hudson Valley, a move that will encourage film production in our region and foster economic growth. The Senate already passed this bill earlier this year, and it is now awaiting the Governor’s signature.

Mountainkeeper and activist supporters like you have been strong and persistent advocates for this legislation. Last March Mountainkeeper submitted a letter to the Governor requesting the Tax Credit expansion signed by over 30 entertainment professionals including Chevy Chase, Natalie Merchant, Debra Winger, Mary-Stuart Masterson, Mark Ruffalo, Jon Bowermaster and Aidan Quinn.

Save Trees; Stop the Constitution Pipeline

email_sidebar_logging_act_now_300.pngOutrageous! The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has given the Constitution Pipeline companies permission to cut down a 100-foot wide swath of trees along the pipeline route in Pennsylvania BEFORE New York has granted the project a required water quality certificate under the Clean Water Act. Loggers have already begun cutting down trees in PA but if New York denies the 401 water quality certificate the pipeline cannot be built and the destruction of trees will stop. Please send your message now.
