The 650 MW Competitive Power Ventures Valley Energy Project is now under construction in Orange County, New York, despite an ongoing and expanded federal criminal investigation, one guilty plea, and felony bribery charges against a company executive and close aides to Governor Cuomo, Joseph Percoco and Todd Howe. State agencies have ignored growing public concerns with fracked gas infrastructure, even as reports and studies by medical associations tell us it is not safe. Now, prominent experts advise that environmental degradation and long-term climate impacts of this project warrant emergency intervention by the state.

They will be joined by former Congressman Dennis Kucinich who called for an investigation months before indictments were announced and actor James Cromwell, who vowed to go to jail to defend against the catastrophic climate and public health impacts recently identified by the scientists.
