Join us to learn more about the proposed Danskammer power plant in Newburgh. You’ll hear from experts and citizen activists about the plant’s potential impacts on Beacon, clean energy alternatives and, most important, how you can help stop it!
The new plant would:
- Lock us into another half century of fossil fuel use (and greenhouse gas emissions), perpetuating global climate change
- Increase air pollution
- Store hazardous materials that could spill into the Hudson
- Be at significant risk of flooding from sea level rise and storm surge
- Be a blight on the riverfront (including 150-200’ exhaust stacks)
Light refreshments will be provided.
