PAUSE, People Advocating the Use of Sustainable Energy, was founded by Newfield, NY residents concerned about the impacts of shale gas extraction on our town and region. These include environmental, health, economic and social impacts.
We strive to educate ourselves and our neighbors about the technologies and risks of unconventional gas drilling and to promote actions that will protect our town and region.
Our broader mission includes helping to create awareness of the possibilities for energy conservation and renewable energy in Newfield and launching or supporting initiatives that spur adoption of energy conserving technologies and residential renewable energy systems.
We believe that all our neighbors, whether their land is leased or not, value clean air, clean drinking water and the peaceful rural character of our town. We have the right and the duty, as we cross the bridge to the future, to make choices that support a healthy future for all.
Let's PAUSE to create a world in which people, animals, plants, all communities flourish.
The Newfield covered bridge, the town's most beloved landmark. It was built in 1853 and still carries traffic. It was entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.
