The hearing is tonight, Wednesday. And there are other ways to comment.
The proposal is to create a liquefied natural gas facility 20 miles south of Jones Beach. It would be called “Port Ambrose.” Ships would bring super-chilled liquefied natural gas, which would be piped to shore. I use natural gas for heating and cooking. I also oppose this facility. That doesn’t make me a hypocrite; it makes me someone with a conscience who wants alternatives to fossil fuels rather than more excuses for more fossil fuels.
Do we really want to allow gas pipes all over the seafloor, locking us into more use of a dangerous fossil fuel and interfering with planning to develop wind turbines in the same region? I don’t. Neither does the NY Daily News, who came out against this plan.
