Thank you to those who have already sent in your comments and shared this information with your contacts.  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.  

Sadly, the Greenidge facility in the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country is the epicenter of this fight.  We  have until this Friday, November 19th to make our voices heard. Permitting Greenidge to renew its Title V Air Permit will have devastating impacts on our air, our health, and the vibrant economy in the Finger Lakes.  But equally important is what allowing this facility to keep polluting will do to our climate.

Sure, this is a local issue for those living near the plant, but this has statewide, national, and even global consequences.

Let's help the NYSDEC and Governor Hochul see the bigger picture.  Please urge them to deny the  Title V Air Permit for Greenidge, and send a message to the rest of the proof of work crypto miners: New York's Climate Is Not For Sale.
