COA continues to work with NY/NJ Baykeeper and elected officials to seek public meetings along the Bayshore and an expanded comment period for this project. The project could encourage the transport of fracking-produced natural gas from the Marcellus Shale region to the New York region.
New Jersey would absorb the environmental impacts and risks of accidents and leaks while receiving no benefit. Furthermore, continued investment in fossil infrastructure will further lock the region into a climate catastrophe in the near future. We must oppose this project. To take action and get involved, sign up for alerts at www.cleanoceanaction.org and www.nynjbaykeeper.org, and sign the petition against this project at: http://nynjbaykeeper.org/say-no-to-a-pipeline-proposal-in-raritan-bay/ .
