Groups Respond to LIPA’s Postponement of Offshore Wind Vote

Dear Governor Cuomo:

The undersigned local, state and national organizations representing hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers write to express our deep concern and disappointment that the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) Board of Trustees postponed the vote scheduled for July 20, 2016, which was expected to advance New York’s first offshore wind farm over 30 miles from the East End of Long Island.

Fracking By the Numbers

The combination of two technologies— hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drill- ing—has enabled the oil and gas industry to engage in an e ort to unlock oil and gas in under- ground rock forma ons across the United States. “Fracking,” however, has also led to tremendous environmental harm and put the health and safety of communities across the country at risk.

We Have the Power

America can address our largest environmental challenges by shifting to 100 percent renewable energy. Renewable energy makes us safer and healthier, protecting our communities from global warming and from hazardous air pollution. Renewable energy reduces the need for dangerous and destructive practices like shipping explosive fuels through our cities, fracking for gas near our water supplies, or razing our mountains to dig up dirty coal.
