Today, Clean Water Action's Campaign Director David Pringle released the following statement in regards to Governor Cuomo's announcement to reject a proposal to build a liquefied natural gas terminal in the waters off New York and New Jersey:
"Thank you, Governor Cuomo, and thank you to the incredible diverse grassroots effort against this dirty, dangerous, and unneeded fossil fuel project. This is a victory for the shipping and fishing industries, small businesses, the environment, national security and so much more, most notably democracy. This decision was a no brainer but these days you can take nothing for granted. Shame on the fossil fuel industry and the feds for making so many waste precious resources including time away from families on this.
