From Kevin Heatley, Shale Justice Coalition
South Jersey Gas Company wants to run a 22 mile pipeline (carrying fracked gas) through the New Jersey Pinelands – an internationally designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
It is supposedly protected by the Pinelands Commission but the commission has been compromised and is about to allow an exemption to the Comprehensive Plan. South Jersey Gas claims they are using it to change the BL England coal plant over to gas. But the plant is located on Egg Harbor – next to the Ocean. It’s an easy speculation what that location portends–global transport.
This is not rocket science.
This is a moral imperative.
CALL Governor Chris Christie (609) 292-6000 and demand that the pipeline NOT be built through the Pinelands!
