DEC’s Public Meeting on Crude & Tar Sand (transport thru Port of Albany)

Urgent! Attend the DEC’s Public Information Meeting on Crude and Tar Sands Oil Transport.
Most New Yorkers are unaware that the Hudson River is already the country’s largest Superfund site. The last thing we need is to be threatened with another toxic spill. Yet New York State’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is throwing caution to the wind by allowing Global Terminal, LP to transport crude oil and possibly tar sand oil via rail and by ship on the Hudson River. 
You are cordially invited to join a working group, including members of Hudson Riverkeeper, NRDC, Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter, Environmental Advocates and PAUSE (People in Albany United for Safe Energy) to Flip the Switch from toxic combustible crude and tar sands oil to truly safe and sustainable energy.
Speak out against the DEC’s outrageous conduct. The DEC is violating our due process rights and ignoring the precautionary principle that is vital to pubic safety.
