Activists rally in front of governor's home to call for climate action

MOUNT KISCO -

People from across the Hudson Valley came together Sunday in front of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's home in Mount Kisco to call for climate action.

The group, which included religious leaders from different faiths and environmentalists, are asking the governor to stop state-funded fossil fuel projects.

This includes shutting down the Algonquin Pipeline that runs right next to the Indian Point Power Plant in Buchanan. 

“If it explodes and the radiation from the fuel rods were to ignite, it could decimate the entire 50-mile radius,” says Susan Van Dolsen, of Healing and Protecting Our Land Together. Van Dolsen also asked Gov. Cuomo to release risk assessment results on the pipeline that he ordered two years ago.

Activists also want to see Cuomo shut down the CPV gas power plant in Wawayanda.
