Help Spread the Word about the Proposed E37 Pipeline
Saturday, May 25th from 9:30 am-12 noon

Meet at the East Greenbush Town Hall
 225 Columbia Turnpike, Rensselaer, NY 12144
(Join us for lunch afterwards!)


Join us and Spread the Word about the
Public Forum about the Proposed Fracked Gas Pipeline
to go through Bethlehem, East Greenbush and North Greenbush

 Wednesday, June 12th , 7- 8:30 pm
East Greenbush Library
 
Most of the people who live around the E-37/Albany Loop proposed fracked gas pipeline don't know about it. It's important that the people who will be affected by this pipeline learn about it. 
 
On Saturday, May 25th we are going door to door to hand out flyers about the proposed project and about the informational meeting.

Click here for a flyer about the information meeting and put it up where you work or shop. Print some more and give them to your friends too.

Please forward this email to anyone you think might help us tomorrow or anytime in the future.

Go to caseonline.org/arguments-against-the-e37/ to learn more about the project and our objections to it.

It's still not too late to post your E37/Albany Loop comment by midnight May 24th. Click here to add your comment.

Here is a summary of the project and our objections:

National Grid is proposing a new 7.3 mile fracked gas pipeline to go from Bethlehem, through East Greenbush and ending in North Greenbush.  They hope to begin construction this fall and anticipate that it will take three years to finish. 

We object to the project for the following reasons:

Need not established: National Grid's explanation for why the pipeline is needed is not adequately backed up with facts and research. 

Non pipeline alternatives were not seriously considered: Future need can be accommodated by conservation, energy efficiency projects and renewable energy alternatives.

Environmental Damage: The pipeline is contrary to NY State's Climate goals, will add to climate warming, increase fracking, and disrupt the Hudson River. 

Danger and Disruption to the Community: Pipelines always have the possibility of explosions, and three years of construction (going under Route 4 and Interstate 90) will cause disruption to traffic in the community. 

Public Involvement: National Grid did not adequately involve the community about their proposal. Since ratepayers pay for new pipelines through increased electrical rates, it is important to adequately inform these ratepayers.
