Rally against pipeline and compressor station September 28th, Monday 430pm at Albany Civic Center, sign up to speak at FERC hearing at 530pm, speak at FERC hearing starting at 6pm.
Please remember that scientific studies show that within one mile of a gas compressor station in New York, which is 1/4 the size of the one planned for Albany (meaning it will impact people within a 4 miles radius) , the following impacts on health were recorded:
- asthma, nosebleeds, headaches, and rashes
- elevated levels of formaldehyde, a carcinogen
- increased mortality rate of persons over 65
- double the risk of autism in expectant mothers in the third trimester
Some people think that pipeline and compressor station are positive aspects of the pipeline and compressor station, if you disagree go to the rally and speak!.
