AIM Pipeline Poses Risks The Hudson Valley’s People And Water


by Andrew Ciccone September 16, 2016

Imagine striking a match next to a gas can — not a good idea.

Lighting a cigarette while pumping fuel into your car — dangerous. Blowing up the entire Hudson River Valley & beyond ?? Simply put, some things are just stupid.

Spectra Energy’s Algonquin Incremental Market (AIM) project is one of those stupid things. The AIM Pipeline in the northeast USA will run a fracked gas pipeline just about 105 feet from Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant’s critical infrastructure unless the project's approval is reversed.

Recently exceedingly high levels of tritium have been detected in monitoring wells at Indian Point. Not good.

Even Governor Andrew Cuomo, and New York Senators Schumer and Gillibrand have called for the Spectra Algonquin Incremental Market (AIM) pipeline construction be be halted.

There is agreement - Putting a gas pipeline right next to one of the world’s most dangerous nuclear power plants - right within the most densely populated areas of the USA certainly fits into that stupid category. Even a monkey would have better sense than the Spectra Planners.

Sorry monkeys to compare you in with Spectra.

Twenty million people live and work within 50 miles of Indian Point, which is just over 20 miles north of New York City. Indian Point, which has been ranked the most dangerous power plant in the U.S.

Nuclear and pipeline safety experts have repeatedly warned that a pipeline rupture adjacent to Indian Point could result in a nuclear catastrophe similar or worse than the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

The reliance building out of fracked gas infrastructure has resulted in efforts to find new dangerous places to put put pipelines. These high pressure gas pipelines pose real threats to our water, our health, our land and our food supplies - many people call this type of planning STUPID !!!

You Can Help . . .

Stop Algonquin Pipeline Expansion (SAPE) is a grassroots organization whose mission is to educate citizens and elected government officials about the negative impacts associated with the Spectra Energy’s Algonquin Incremental Market Project. 

SAPE strongly feels that the project will endanger the public’s safety and quietly of life, contaminate water, air and soil, cause harm to domestic animals and wildlife, and threaten farmland property values.

ResistAIM is a grassroots coalition of people standing up against the AIM pipeline. They have no political affiliation and are individuals from a wide range of backgrounds, beliefs and communities who have come together toward this common goal. 

Stand up. Its our earth. Its our Hudson Valley. Its our water and its our lives. Sign The Pledge to Resist
