Riverkeeper is a conservation group advocating for the protection of clean water from the Hudson River for public use and natural habitats. [1] It signed a petition supporting the Green New Deal. [2]

Riverkeeper advocated for the closure of the nuclear power plant at the Indian Point Energy Center, once the source of 25 percent of the electricity for New York City. Contrary to claims by Riverkeeper and others, the plant was not replaced by weather-dependent energy sources such as wind and solar. The New York Times reported that Indian Point’s zero-carbon electricity was mostly replaced by power plants burning natural gas. Nuclear power plants produce no carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gas emissions, and as of 2021 accounted for 20 percent of American electricity production—the largest source of zero carbon electricity in the United States.  [3] [4] [5]
