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. Towns across New York are facing energy-hogging, noisy, greenhouse gas emitting Bitcoin mining facilities. There's big money involved, and small towns can be easily misled by corporations promising jobs and revenue. The sad fact is that these facilities often pit community members against one another, don't offer many jobs (the machines are fully automated), and the majority of the money is for private financial gain. What's at stake is clean air, clean water, and our climate. 

The Greenidge facility on the shores of Seneca Lake awaits the renewal of its Title V Air Permit, where it has estimated that its on site and upstream (now required by New York's Climate law) emissions will be over a million tons of CO2 annually. This is not in keeping with Finger Lakes Wine Country, where we rely heavily on clean air and water for the 58,000 jobs and $3 Billion revenue our region supports. This is not in keeping with New York's bold climate law, geared to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

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!

@NYSDEC @GovKathyHochul Don't let the harmful impacts of Bitcoin mining impact NY communities. Start by denying the Greenidge Title V Air Permit.  https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/stop-greenidge-crypto-mining
