A wonderful group of eleven mothers and others (two had to leave before we took the group photo) gathered last night at the home of Kristin Bartholomew in Lansing NY to discuss the issue of the repowering of the Cayuga Power Plant. Kristin's two boys have to cross the county road where the top-heavy compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks will be driving every day as they walk or bike to and from school. An estimated 50-120 truck trips per day are projected to be required to fuel the gas burner if the coal-to-gas conversion is approved. This represents an 85-200% increase in truck traffic on that route.
