Field Director Eric Whalen says the renewable resource will reduce rates of asthma and heart disease that go hand-in-hand with fossil fuels.  He said, “One of the great things about renewable energy and wind energy in particular is that we can generate electricity in New York State without creating this public health problem,”

Whalen says the report is timed to encourage Governor Cuomo to extend the state’s clean energy programs,  and  to push congress to  extend federal tax incentives for clean energy and for wind power set to expire at the end of the year.

Opponents of wind power say without tax breaks the energy resource isn’t sustainable.
