EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS

Stop the Pipeline (STP) is a grassroots organization that led the fight to stop the Constitution Pipeline. We won a great victory in April 2016 when the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) denied a required water quality certification. The DEC’s denial was upheld in court proceedings, but in late August 2019, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued an order that says the DEC had to act on a prior application. This means our success is now in jeopardy. The pipeline must be stopped again. This time FERC’s decision can only be reversed by a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Since its formation in June 2012, STP has been guided by Anne Marie Garti, who has provided free strategic advice, as well as free legal services through the Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic. Taking the fight to the Court of Appeals requires a legal campaign. STP must now raise a minimum of $55,000 to fund the appeals process to stop the pipeline from being built.

We need your help!

What CP will not tell you about about the Constitution Pipeline

This project would require clear-cutting more than 700,000 trees. Allowing it to proceed would also require digging and blasting through hundreds of pristine Catskills streams—all so a giant corporation can transport fracked gas through New York and on to Canada for export. This pipeline would cost New York millions, if not billions, in increased erosion and flood damage, contaminated water, trout kills, decreased property values and tourism revenue, road and bridge damage, increased safety risks and, ultimately, much higher gas bills. And #natgas kills renewables.
