Tell Governor Christie to #ChooseCleanWater #BanFrackWasteNJ

fracking rally smallWe did it! The fracking waste ban bill (S1041) has been sent to Governor Christie's desk by the Legislature.

This bill will only become a law once the Governor approves it. We need your help in encouraging Governor Christie to get these protections in place as quickly as possible by signing the bill.

New Jersey Governor CV’s Frack Ban:
Environmental Organizations Cry Foul and Will Seek Over-ride!

Trenton, New Jersey – Today New Jersey Governor Chris Christie vetoed the New Jersey Ban Bill (S-2576), flying in the face of the public and the New Jersey Legislature and forfeiting the opportunity to make New Jersey the first state to ban hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” in modern times.  During the Senate’s session August 25, the Governor issued a conditional veto (CV) that set a one year moratorium on fracking in the State.  Environmental groups dismissed the moratorium as meaningless and vowed to work for an over-ride of the CV.  The Frack Ban Bill arose out of a public rallying cry for pro-active action by the State to prevent the water, land and air pollution that is occurring everywhere where fracking is being used to extract natural gas from deep geologic formations such as Marcellus and Utica Shale.

#BanFrackWasteNJ Twitter Storm - Join Us!

#BanFrackWasteNJ Twitter Storm Unless we take action, New Jersey will be used as a dumping ground for fracking waste.

Toxic and radioactive fracking waste has already polluted waterways in Pennsylvania and is now being shipped to New Jersey for disposal in our water. This waste is largely untreated, unreported and unregulated.

Thankfully, the NJ State Senate has passed bipartisan, veto-proof legislation (S1041/A2108) to ban fracking waste from being dumped in NJ's water. Now we need the NJ Assembly to act!

Pinelands and Much More Threatened by Pipeline AGAIN!

no pinelands pipeline earth day rallyIn January, we helped defeat a pipeline from being built in the Pinelands, a national treasure and the source of drinking water for millions. The Pinelands Commission voted NO. However, South Jersey Gas Co. won't give up on its plan to pollute the Pinelands and endanger wildlife and public health. With your help, we can stop them again.
