The debate over proposals to store natural gas, propane and butane in salt caverns under Seneca Lake has become increasingly vocal, especially after a federal agency approved part of the project last May. Last week opponents organized the biggest rally yet in the Finger Lakes village of Watkins Glen.
As the members of the Schuyler County Legislature left their meeting last week, the emotion, passion and anger of opponents of the gas storage projects -- and fracking in general -- burst into full display.
“Shame! Shame! Shame! Shame!” the protestors chanted.
