Connections: Is There Really Support for LPG Storage Near Seneca Lake?

Mar 24, 2015

Is support for LPG storage near Seneca Lake growing? Crestwood Energy says yes. The Elmira Star-Gazette first reported on some new names supporting gas storage last week; on Monday, their sister newspaper, the Democrat & Chronicle, ran the same story. We dig into the claims, starting with this: Why is a trucking company portraying itself as a Finger Lakes vintner? Why is the company's secretary quoted as a "grape inspector," which is not a title that even exists in the wine industry? Why did the company list Senator Kirsten Gillibrand as a supporter, only to have the Senator's office insist they remove that claim? We have a variety of guests to discuss the topic.
