Voice opposition to gas burner proposal
This summer, the United States is experiencing unprecedented heat waves, wildfires and floods due to human-caused climate change.
These climate related events will continue to become more catastrophic if we do not take action and curb greenhouse gas emissions immediately.
Co-incidentally the IPPC has just come out with “Code Red Report for Humanity,” indicating that we can only slow climate change if we make drastic changes immediately.
One of the best strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is to halt new fossil fuel infrastructure.
In spite of the recently enacted Climate Leadership and Community Protective Act and a state ban on fracking, two power plants: the Danskammer Power Plant in Newburgh and the Astoria NRG Power Plant in Astoria have applied for air permits from the DEC.
These plants want to construct new gas burners capable of using fracked gas.
The state Department of Environmental Conservation has opened a 60-day public comment period which began on July 1 and goes to Aug. 29.
Here is your chance to be heard.

Really enjoy photos from Saratoga track
My husband, Jerry, and I are simply amazed at the wonderful photos seen in the At The Track section of The Daily Gazette.
The expressions of the horses’ faces that Gazette photographer Erica Miller captures are just priceless, and we look forward to and treasure each and every one of them.
Just wanted to let you know how much Erica is appreciated — and to thank her so much for brightening our days, especially during track season.
