Pipelines, Pipelines, Pipelines

New Jersey, the Garden State, is in danger of becoming the Pipeline State. The number of proposed new pipelines is growing: the PennEast pipeline in the central and western part of the state; the South Jersey Gas and New Jersey Natural Gas pipelines in the Pinelands; and the Pilgrim Pipeline in the northern part of the state. We have to stand together to stop these pipelines. The New Jersey Chapter is working with our environmental allies and members of the affected communities to stop these projects that contribute to global climage change and endanger our local environment.  Read about them on our Issues Page.

Proposed ExxonMobil Settlement

The ExxonMobil Proposed Settlement is even worse than we expected. Under the original proposal, New Jersey was to receive $8.9 billion for natural resources damages, but under this deal the state would only receive $225 million. The agreement now includes 16 additional sites and an estimated 800 gas stations, not just the two refineries. Read about the Proposed Settlement and make your voice heard.

Highlands Picnic and Hike

On August 9, members and supporters came to the Highlands Natural Pool for a picnic and hike to celebrate the 11th anniversary of the Highlands Act, which helps to preserve our water supply and open space in the North Jersey region.  See photos of the event here.
