NY Activists send a loud message to Senator Chuck Schumer: Stop AIM Pipeline
The League of Conservation Voters is gathering in New York City for “Climate Victory 2016”, LCV’s 14th Annual Dinner. The event features special guest Senator Chuck Schumer and honors the Hip Hop Caucus, Rev. Yearwood.
New York residents and advocates are calling on Senator Charles Schumer to use his influence to stop the pipeline once and for all, and will soon be following today’s action with an action at his office.
The grassroots climate activist community does not think that Senator Schumer is stepping up to help fight the Spectra pipeline as much as he needs to. So, the grassroots climate activist community greeted him and the LCV guests as they arrived to the Hilton Midtown Hotel in Manhattan to get their message across by joining their voices to the call to #StopSpectra.
The Spectra Energy AIM Pipeline is a 42-inch diameter, high pressure, fracked-methane gas pipeline going under the Hudson River alongside the aging and failing Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant. Spectra Energy’s proposed AIM Pipeline would bring fracked gas from Pennsylvania to New England, despite a report from the Massachusetts Attorney General that shows no need for this gas. In New York, if completed, the AIM Pipeline would carry gas through residential communities and within 105 feet of critical safety facilities at Indian Point, endangering 20 million people in its blast radius.
