On August 16th please join us to show Governor Cuomo that we draw our line in the sand
against building the Port Ambrose Liquefied Natural Gas Project!
The Port Ambrose Project is proposed just 19 miles off the coast of Long Beach, Long Island. It would be an explosion and pollution threat to Queens, Brooklyn, and Long Island coastal communities; pose significant risks to the ocean ecosystems and all activities related to them; increase global warming; and impede the prospect of offshore wind energy development in the same location.
Big Oil and Gas wants to construct the Constitution pipeline through our state to carry fracked gas from PA to the highest paying markets. If built this pipeline will destroy acres of forests, clear cut over 700,000 trees, and cross over 277 waterways. TAKE ACTION to stop it!Read more
