DEC Rally

June 5th, 2021 - 2pm - 4pm

It is time for us to call on the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to do its job. Please join us on Saturday, June 5th from 2-4 at DEC Regional Headquarters in Avon, NY 6274 East Avon-Lima Rd., Avon, NY 14414-9519

Greenidge Generation LLC is a natural gas power plant that's mining cryptocurrency on an industrial scale, and Greenidge aims to expand its operations in a small, rural town in the heart of the Finger Lakes, situated on the west side of Seneca Lake. They are also using Seneca Lake for plant cooling, affecting the temperature of the lake, fish viability, and surrounding ecology.

Greenidge has recently announced that it wishes to expand operations to other undisclosed locations.

Join us at the rally to stop this private Bitcoin operation from burning more fossil fuels and emitting more GHGs in a community that depends on fresh air and clean water for our personal health and for the health of our vibrant agricultural tourist economy.

Title Date

Today is Day Zero: Blast off for Comments!

TODAY, FRIDAY NOVEMBER 19TH,  IS YOUR LAST DAY TO COMMENT AND URGE OTHERS TO MAKE THEIR VOICES HEARD.

Only a Few Days Remaining! Please get your Comments In!

It is critical that we let Governor Hochul and the DEC know that we cannot  achieve our climate goals with Greenidge and Greenidge-like facilities.  This is the extractive industry of the 21st century, and it is moving like wildfire through New York.  We  have until this Friday, November 19th to make our voices heard.

Your Daily Countdown Reminder on Greenidge

2 Days Left To Submit Your Comment

With only a few days remaining of the comment deadline for the Greenidge project, we're asking you to please submit a comment if you haven't already, and encourage others to do so.

Many Ways to Comment with only 3 Days left!

We're getting down to the wire on the remaining days to make your voice heard. Other facilities like Greenidge will become more of the norm if the DEC renews Greenidge's Air Permit. This should not be a town by town fight. Tell the DEC to deny the Greenidge Permit today!

Please don’t let another day go by- send a comment and share widely! 4 Days left!

The Greenidge facility in the heart of New York is estimated to emit over 1 million tons of CO2 Equivalents into the atmosphere annually, when factoring in its on site and upstream emissions.

We must tell the DEC and Governor Hochul that we can't lead on climate change if we don't address this industry, and Greenidge is the test case.

5 Days Left To Comment to DEC on Greenidge!

While Congress considers the Finger Lakes for a National Heritage Designation, an old coal-fired plant in the heart of the region has been resurrected and transitioned to burn fracked gas to power thousands of machines to make virtual currency for private gain.

Only 6 Days Left to Comment to DEC on Greenidge!

We've only got 6 days left to let the DEC know where we stand on the Greenidge gas-fired Bitcoin facility. This is not just about the Finger Lakes.  Greenidge is a precedent-setting test case for this relatively new, little understood industry.  How the DEC rules on this power plant in the heart of the FLX will determine the fate of other power plants across the state. 

Only 7 Days Remaining to tell NY to be on the Right Side of Climate

We Need YOU!

We have just 7 days left to tell the DEC and Governor Hochul that they must deny the Greenidge Bitcoin Mining Facility's Title V Air Permit. This precedent-setting case is drawing the attention of statewide organizations, elected officials and even national and international media because of its intensive energy use and subsequent greenhouse gas emissions.

The Climate Can’t Wait

Day 8 of 10 Day Countdown to Comment Campaign

World leaders are meeting in Glasgow where fighting climate change is a top priority. After nine days of grand pronouncements, pledges and plans, scientists delivered a rude awakening to a COP26 summit that has been called “the last, best hope” for climate action: Earth is on track to warm about 2.5 degrees Celsius, exceeding the world’s shared climate goal by a full degree.
