In this virtual trivia event , Zoom guests played alongside host New York State Assemblyman Zohran Mamdani and local Queens celebrities to test their knowledge of the climate crisis and NRG’s proposal to build a dirty fracked gas power plant in Astoria, Queens.
Participants learned how we have beat fracked gas projects before and how together we can stop fracked gas projects like NRG, Danskammer, Gowanus Repowering, and others from building "peaker plants" that would threaten our air, our health, and our future.
When: 7 PM
NYPIRG co-sponsored an online forum featuring New York State Senator Pete Harckham, Peekskill Councilmember Vanessa Agudelo, Courtney Williams of SEnRG, Carlos Garcia of NYC-EJA, and Aneta Voronkova of Pratt NYPIRG. Participants learned about how we will transition to 100% renewables in a way that supports our communities, workers, and the neighborhoods that are most at risk from dirty energy. We also discussed exciting new renewable energy projects, initiatives, and legislation coming up.
The forum was also co-sponsored by Beyond Indian Point, Alliance for a Green Economy, Frack Action, Riverkeeper, NIRS, Food & Water Watch, Safe Energy Rights Group (SEnRG), Resist Spectra, and NYC Environmental Justice Alliance.
