New York has committed to achieving 100% renewable electricity by 2040. Despite this, fracked gas power plant proposals are popping up in the highly dense neighborhoods, including one by Sunset Park in Brooklyn.
The Gowanus proposal aims to repower a massive 640 MW fracked gas plant, posing huge risks to the air and water of the local community -- and worsening our climate crisis by burning dirty fossil fuels around the clock.
On its own, the Gowanus fracked gas project would make it virtually impossible to hit the climate goals New York just enacted into law. But in the midst of the coronavirus, it's a death sentence for at-risk individuals.
Sign below to tell Gov. Hochul and the Public Service Commission to reject the dirty Gowanus plant and all other fracked gas infrastructure.
