Big wins on pesticides and microbeads!

This legislative session, the Coalition was thrilled to support two bills that will safeguard our environment and the health of Connecticut residents - a strong law banning plastic microbeads in cosmetics and personal care products, and enhanced notification prior to a pesticide application on school grounds, along with restrictions on the use of pesticides on municipal playgrounds.    

This is huge!

Act Today for Clean Energy Now!

clean energy wind turbineseWe'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).

Stop the Salem Fish Kills!

salem fish killsThe 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.

Please take action to stop the fish slaughter and hold Governor Christie to his word.

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.

Let's Transition to a Clean Energy Future!

Now, we need your help to urge NJ State Legislators to join us - please contact them today!

Annual Report - 2014

There’s a very good reason the cover of our latest Annual Report (2014) features what we like to think of as a “happy picture.” You’ll understand what I’m talking about when you check out the Big Win for Our Water article.
It’s nice to know that we’re making progress and that there’s good news to report from time to time -- despite having our hands full with a Congress whose leaders seem determined to undermine our most fundamental environmental and health protections.

Yes, 2014 brought good news for our water, and, so far, 2015 is continuing that momentum. The Obama Administration’s Clean Water Rule, finalized this spring, will go a long way to close Clean Water Act loopholes, restoring protections for small streams, wetlands and drinking water.

Sign the Petition! Get FEMA to conduct an oil train derailment drill in Philadelphia

oil train paRight 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!
