Today is a great day in the fight against the invasion of our state by a flood of dangerous and dirty fossil fuels. Governor Cuomo has officially vetoed the Port Ambrose Liquefied Natural Gas project proposed just 19 miles off the shore of Long Beach.
This is a huge victory, and we are proud of Mountainkeeper’s work to rally the public outcry that helped convince the Governor to do the right thing and say no to this reckless project. Port Ambrose would have threatened coastal communities in Queens, Brooklyn and Long Island with the risk of catastrophic spills and explosions and endanger treasured marine ecosystems.
Many people and organizations worked tirelessly for this victory, from the front line communities all along the southern shore of Long Island, to the Rockaways, to the local elected officials from both parties, to the members of the No LNG Coalition, and to Mountainkeeper online activists.
Our activists helped Mountainkeeper play a key role in this incredible coalition, and the results are yet another powerful example of what we can achieve working together. Our team now looks forward to shifting some of that energy to build support for the offshore wind farm proposed for the same location as Port Ambrose.
We thank Governor Cuomo for his leadership on climate, for saying no to the fossil fuel industry, and for choosing the path toward our renewable energy future.
Please take a moment to do the same by sending a message to Governor Cuomo to thank him for vetoing Port Ambrose.
