The Governor is still on the fence about Broadwater, and his decision is due any day now. Don’t let Big Oil have more influence than the public- Call Spitzer TODAY!
We’re in the final stretch of a long and difficult campaign. We have to keep the momentum moving. The Federal Government released the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) on Broadwater. As expected, FERC gave Broadwater the green light to move forward. Now, the future of Long Island Sound lies solely in the hands of Governor Spitzer. Governor Spitzer has until February 12 to make his decision on Broadwater and decide whether or not he supports Big Oil’s interests or the Public’s interests. His decision can come any day now, so tell himtoday to listen to the public and stop Broadwater!
Broadwater Energy, a joint venture between Shell Oil and TransCanada, is proposing to build an industrial Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) barge in the open waters of Long Island Sound, approximately 9 miles from Rocky Point.
How you can help!
Call Governor Spitzer today at (518) 474-8390. Tell him:
  • Your name, address, and town/city;
  • To “Be your Valentine and say No to Broadwater” or “Have a heart, protect Long Island Sound; Say No to Broadwater”;
  • You are counting on him to stand up for the public’s interests – not Big Energy’s interests!
  • Why Long Island Sound is important to you, your family, and your community;
  • Why you believe the Sound is an extraordinary water body and should be protected for the public and not handed over to Shell Oil.

Please send a quick email to newhaven@citizenscampaign.org or tofarmingdale@citizenscampaign.org with any response you receive from the Governor’s office. It helps us track progress on the issue.

The only way we can win on this issue is if Governor Spitzer hears from the public loud and clear.
