Climate Groups Urge Governor to Deny Expansion of Iroquois Pipeline

Climate activists rallied at the Capitol on Tuesday to call on Governor Hochul to deny a request for a State Air Facility Permit for the Iroquois Pipeline Company’s expansion by compression proposal. The expansion would require doubling the size of polluting fracked gas compressor stations in nearby Athens and Dover as well as two more in Connecticut. We hear from Kim Fraczek of SANE Energy Project; Mary Finneran of Greene County, Charlie Quimby of Concerned Citizens of Dover, Cari Gardner, who lives near the Athens Compressor Station and member of New York Progressive Action Network, and Emily Skyel of Food and Water Watch.
