February 20, 2019

It’s bad enough that we’ve been told not to worry about the dangers of the NESE Project even though we often hear about leaks and explosions of natural gas pipelines and compressor stations. 

It’s a fact that the NESE Project will add greenhouse gases and toxic chemicals to the air and will churn up toxins by digging in Raritan Bay. 

It’s a fact that 2018 ...

Our Safety and Well-Being are not for sale. Stop efforts to add another industrial facility next to Trap Rock.

Have you felt things shake when Trap Rock blasts? 

Do you remember the recent gas pipeline explosions and fires in Massachusetts?

 The final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) Project was published by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on January 25, 2019, and it’s predictable that Williams/Transco will be given ...

Going Nowhere

I am rarely inspired by television commercials. For example, as great as the ads are, I have never switched to Geico.

But a spot on TV lately has made me want to shed my slovenly ways and reach the unreachable.

In the advertisement it is 5 AM and I am a young, fit, attractive woman. A gentle voice is encouraging me to get closer to something that has always been there, to be more than I am, ...
