February 26, 2019 // 0 Comments

A Clear and Present Danger:  Shut Off the Gas at Indian Point (Please note the following correction at 1:39: “The newly constructed 42 inch high pressure gas pipeline runs 115 feet from critical electrical infrastructure at Indian Point. …”  The closed captions reflect this correction.) The people who live near Indian Point, with its nuclear power plant ask:  Why would putting a gas pipeline within a few hundred feet of a nuclear power plant be a problem?  Why keep building larger and larger gas pipelines here or anywhere else, especially near Indian Point?

  Videographer Peter Eliscu follows the judge’s verdict of the last three defendants who used non-violent civil disobedience to stop the oil/gas corporation, Spectra, from continuing a part of their pipeline next to the nuclear power plant, Indian Point, in Weschester County, NYS.  Their defense was to use the “necessity defense” as their reasoning for their actions:  we tried everything else and nothing has worked, so this action, this non-violent civil disobedience action, was our next, last and only choice left to us.  Therefore, we are all innocence.   In [...]

Nuclear Convergence : Hudson River Sacrifice Zone

April 2, 2017 // 0 Comments

  Jeanne and Gary Shaw outline this month’s Stony Point Convergence meeting with a theme of how the Hudson River is now a “sacrificial Zone” due to the confluence of a number of energy projects all being used to get fossil fuels to market in an age when sustainable energies are needed. The risks of pipelines, compressors, fuel trains, fuel barges, and their proximity to Nuclear Power Plants, along with earthquake faults and larger size pipeline diameters, just aren’t worth the risks of a nuclear accident of any kind. Other topics include:  the upcoming 6th [...]

Groups Unite Against Gas and Nuclear Power in Clean Energy Standards Proposals

June 18, 2016 // 0 Comments

On June 16, 2016, a group of concerned citizens representing grassroots organizations came together to express their concerns and raise questions with the Public Service Commission on the role of gas and nuclear power in the Clean Energy Standards. Calling nuclear power clean and carbon free, as is done in the CES is simply not true. Mislabeling it in the CES provokes deep distrust of the process and calls into question both the methodology and integrity of the Commission.   If we are to move towards a truly green energy policy coal, oil, gas and uranium must be left in the ground.  Tier 3 [...]
