Not In My Schoolyard

A silent danger is threatening children in New York State. Natural gas suppliers are rushing to beat legislation and are quietly building "virtual" pipelines to transport highly explosive compressed natural gas through our towns and villages.

Small towns are being plagued with large compressor/fueling stations that tap in to the pipelines, compress the gas, and load it directly into tanker trucks (each truck has the explosive power of over 120 tons of TNT). These facilities are being built near our schools, playgrounds, and parks leaving communities exposed to pipeline fires and explosions. Help us fight to keep our children and our communities safe from harm across New York State. The child’s life you save may be your own.

We ask residents all over New York State to please join us by signing and sharing the petition below. We are petitioning Governor Cuomo to create an executive order to ban such facilities within one mile of our schools.
