CALL on GOVERNOR CUOMO TO VETO the PORT AMBROSE LNG

 

  1. LNG released into the environment is highly flammable and unsafe, and poses an explosion risk.
     

  2. LNG tankers and facilities pose serious security risks, and are vulnerable to terrorism. Port Ambrose would be located just miles from NY/NJ Harbor, JFK Airport, and located between channels for commerce including chemical oil tankers. It is irresponsible to site a potential terrorism target like this near a residential and commercial hub.
     

  3. LNG is a disaster for our climate and steers us away from efficiency, conservation, and renewable energy.
     

  4. Liberty Natural Gas Port Ambrose is a secretive corporation of nameless backers based in the Cayman Islands that refuses to disclose who they are and their financial investors.
     

  5. LNG Port Ambrose would industrialize our ocean, harm marine life, and impact fishing.
     

  6. LNG Port Ambrose would put coastal communities in jeopardy from hurricanes and storms.
     

  7. Exporting LNG would cause hydrofracking to increase across the region. (pages 46-55)

  8. LNG Port Ambrose is exceeding likely to become an export facility that would drive up energy costs for families who use natural gas in the region.
     

  9. LNG Port Ambrose would create only six (6) long-term jobs; a real green energy future including energy conservation and renewables will create thousands of high paying, permanent jobs.

 

Call Governor Cuomo & urge him to VETO PORT AMBROSE!

LONG ISLAND SIERRA CLUB SUPPORTS A SUMMERTIME RESTRICTION ON GAS LEAF BLOWERS

 

Long Island has gotten an F in Air Quality from the American Lung Association for 14 years in a row.  Gas Leaf Blowers (GLBs) have multiple adverse health effects. Cancer, asthma and heart disease are just a few conditions that arise from particulates, which unregulated GLBs excel in raising. Gas Leaf Blower emissions contribute significantly to Climate Chaos. Toxic dust, which includes heavy metals and pesticides, goes everywhere, including on organic gardens and solar panels.

 

Almost 500 communities in the U.S. have restricted or banned these most polluting and unheatlhy machines. The state of Hawaii and Israel have banned them year-round.

 

In addition to the LISC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Lung Association, and the Huntington/Oyster Bay Audubon Society have sent letters of support.

Are you a resident of the Town of Huntington? If so, help HUNTINGTON C.A.L.M. convince the Town Board to seasonally restrict Gas Leaf Blowers. Call your town representatives today.
