Seneca Lake needs YOU tonight!

While the Finger Lakes is being considered for a National Heritage Designation by Congress, the small Town of Torrey and Greenidge could make a decision that would forever harm this gem of a region we call home. Burning dirty fossil fuels, warming our water, killing our aquatic life, and generating noise is completely antithetical to our way of life- one that would negatively impact our air, our environment, our water, and our agri-tourism economy- for generations to come- in the midst of global climate change. It’s inconceivable. We cannot allow this to happen.

Let’s fight off dirty fuel this Thursday!

New York’s Climate Leadership & Community Protection Act (CLCPA) mandates that we get off of fossil fuels and invest in frontline communities — eventually, the fossil fuel industry will be irrelevant. Unsurprisingly, they’re pushing back. NY Renews just released a new report detailing five “false solutions” that the gas industry puts forward to seem “clean” and “green”, but in reality are just as dirty as their fossil fuel counterparts. So what to do?

We must tell the Public Service Commission: New Yorkers deserve better than Holtec!

We must speak out! New Yorkers deserve better than Holtec! Entergy (current owner) is asking the PSC to approve the transfer of Indian Point Nuclear Plant and the associated $1.6 billion decommissioning trust fund to a joint venture of Holtec International and SNC-Lavalin (henceforth Holtec). Holtec has been cited for malfeasance, safety violations, financial misdealings, and corruption. This track record should disqualify Holtec from obtaining the licence to decommission Indian Point and gaining control of the $1.6 billion Decommissioning Trust Fund. Many organizations that follow nuclear industry issues believe Holtec is unfit to manage Indian Point and the trust fund because Holtec has no experience decommissioning nuclear power plants and is likely to cut corners to maximize its profits as shown by its long history of lies, bribes and risk-taking.

Floof Collage pARTy!

Headquartered in Stern’s 500 square foot studio on Burleigh Road in Ithaca, the studio offers a mixed-media experience to unlock the inner artist. Decorate with a variety of materials, further embellish with a few more, and add a bit of something else for good measure. Many of her materials are recycled and repurposed!
