The premise of purchasing your own power plant to generate electricity to make virtual currency is a brilliant idea if you don't care about clean air, water, or the climate. 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. This facility could have harmful impacts not only on the Finger Lakes region, but also on New York State's climate goals. There are other power plants waiting in the wings to follow the Greenidge model. 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. Please submit your comment today, asking the DEC to deny Greenidge's Title V Air Permit Renewal.

Proof of Work #cryptocurrency is an environmental disaster that generates Bitcoin. Tell @NYSDEC @GovKathyHochul that we can't allow Greenidge or Greenidge-like facilities in New York and call ourselves climate leaders. https://act.sierraclub.org/actions/Atlantic?actionId=AR0343602
