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. If Greenidge and Greenidge-like facilities are permitted to revitalize old fossil fuel burning plants to power thousands of machines to make virtual currency, New York will fail at reaching its climate goals. 

This facility could certainly threaten the clean air and water in the Finger Lakes- on which our vibrant agri-tourism industry relies- to sustain its $3 Billion influx into New York's economy that supports 58,000 jobs. But its impacts go far beyond the Finger Lakes region, which is why the whole world is watching to see how New York handles Greenidge.

7 Days Left to Comment
Greenidge Generation, a #cryptocurrency mining facility in the #FLX, is a test case that could determine how the rest of NY responds to this industry. Tell @GovKathyHochul and @NYSDEC to protect our environment before it’s too late: https://act.sierraclub.org/actions/Atlantic?actionId=AR0343602
