Just five days after 300,000 New Yorkers and 4 million people around the world participated in the Global Climate Strikes, Governor Cuomo joined WNYC reiterating his opposition. “We have taken a position: We’re against the pipeline. That’s our position. DEC has considered it, and they are re-submitting additional information. But there’s no negotiation. If they’re extorting people, and wrongfully turning off gas service to homes to create political pressure, I’m not negotiating over that. That’s extortion. That’s a crime.” regarding the Williams NESE pipeline and the corporate utility extortion abusing their monopoly status.
