Thanks to Laura Haight, Partnership for Policy Integrity, for alerting us to the anti garbage incineration campaign in Rockland County, N.Y.

The Partnership for Policy Integrity (PFPI) was founded in 2010. The organization uses science, legal action, and strategic communications to promote sound energy policy and to help citizens enact science-based policies that protect air, water, ecosystems, and the climate.

Citizens in Rockland County, NY successfully blocked construction of a proposal by New Planet Energy to build the largest waste gasification facility in the country, right on the shores of the beautiful Hudson River, just north of New York City. Congratulations to the citizen action group NOPE! (No New Project Energy (NOPE).
