As you’ve probably heard, President Trump has publicaly stated, “We are going to get rid of it [US Environmental Protection Agency] in almost every form.” Stripping down regulations and agencies that protect our waterways and natural resources favors the interests of polluters instead of the people. We need YOUR help to protect what is rightfully ours! The EPA was created in 1972 to protect swimmable, fishable, and drinkable waterways and the ecosystems that depend on them. There’s no time to move backwards when we’ve come this far! Take action by telling your Congress member that cuts to the EPA budget Read more →
Williams Transco has proposed a 23.4-mile pipeline project to expand its existing Transco transmission system to transport natural gas from the Marcellus Shale region through Raritan Bay to New York. If built, the pipeline will disrupt YOUR fishing, boating. and recreational activities! Construction of the pipeline would also disturb habitat for clams, horseshoe crabs, fish, and other marine animals. This is a step backwards for our energy policy and the environment by committing the region to more fossil fuel infrastructure projects that may be unnecessary or make it more difficult for renewables to enter the market.
