@ Long Island University, CW Post
This week join the Sparrow Project as we co-host a presentation at Long Island University on the Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) artificial island being proposed to be built 13 miles south of Long Beach, NY. The presentation will feature talks by David Byer Water Policy Analyst for Clean Ocean Action, Sparrow Media founder Andy Stepanian, Cipher drummer & Surfrider Volunteers Danny Bobis & Katie Lawrence. The night is open to both the public & students and is aimed at educating and building grassroots resistance to the construction of these three proposed LNG installations upon the northeast’s only natural reef habitat, the cholera bank. A move to LNG is one that shuns renewable resources entirely and gets us hooked on another fossil fuel. After seeing the role that oil played in so many foreign conflicts, we must opt out of committing ourselves to a similar paradigm.
