The Greenhouse Gas Impacts of Proposed Natural-Gas Pipeline Build-Out in New York
We estimate that the potential buildout of the ten proposed natural gas pipelines and associated compressor stations in New York State would increase statewide greenhouse gas emissions, driving the state's 2030 greenhouse gas goals virtually out of reach.
Our three formal areas of research — Clean Energy, Energy and Environment, and Environmental Health — focus on the overlap of energy production, public health, and the natural environment. We publish vetted, scientific analyses to inform state and federal policy.
