We're heading in the wrong direction, New Jersey. Oil bomb trains are rolling through our neighborhoods. Plans are in the works for massive new pipelines in the Pinelands and Highlands and a Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) terminal and drilling off the Jersey Shore.
But there is something you can do about it! The Christie Administration's Board of Public Utilities (BPU) is accepting public comment on updating its 2011 Energy Master Plan (EMP).
The Governor Christie Administration has broken yet another promise - to stop the killing of 3 billion fish a year at the Salem 1 and 2 nuclear power plants.
The State has issued a draft permit that will allow PSE&G to operate Salem business as usual – drawing in over 3 billion gallons of water a day, killing over 3 billion fish a year, discharging heated water and other pollutants into sensitive estuarine waters.
Pipelines, oil trains, fracking, and offshore oil and gas projects are impacting every corner of New Jersey. To fight back, we've formed a powerful new coalition to ensure New Jersey transitions to a clean energy future.
Now, we need your help to urge NJ State Legislators to join us - please contact them today!
Right now, cities across the country do not have the proper resources or training to deal with emergencies related to an oil train derailment. In response, FEMA has stepped in to conduct worst case scenario drills in places like Jersey City, NJ and La Crosse, WI. The Jersey City drill revealed 87 people would be killed instantly and residents would sustain injuries up to three quarters of a mile away!
Recently, more and more information has gone public that has exposed the oil and gas industry as a major threat to California's water supply. From illegal injection of oil and gas waste into drinking water, to dumping of toxic wastewater into unlined pits, to irrigation of crops with potentially contaminated oil byproducts, there has been no shortage of cause for alarm.
