Wind 100 countdown begins!


Save the date and time! One month from today!
Exact location in the Long Beach Area to be announced.

Our friend Matthew Kearns is running 100 + miles to bring attention to the growing need for and easy availability of Offshore Wind power here on Long Island.

You and I will be there to turn that attention to help Governor Cuomo understand we support moving to offshore wind NOW and help him act on offshore wind power.

Matt is running 100 miles. If you support renewable energy and offshore wind power for Long Island, the least you can do is put aside a couple hours to attend this event.


Be a part of this historical moment and movement. Be there!

RSVP to Sierra Club here: yes I will be there to cheer Matt on and support renewable energy and offshore wind!

Governor Cuomo Urged to Make Wind Power a Priority in 2014



December 18, 2013, Hauppague NY. Today, Sierra Club and New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG), amongst other supporters, delivered the 12,944 signatures they received to the Long Island office of Governor Andrew Cuomo, calling on the governor to expand and support wind energy in New York.

“This outpouring of public support for wind power demonstrates that New Yorkers are ready for Governor Cuomo to make our state a national wind power leader,” said Sierra Club Organizer David Alicea. “Governor Cuomo can lead us into the 21st century by making a strong commitment on wind energy that will boost our economy, create jobs, and clean up our air.”
