March for a Fossil Fuel Moratorium!
On the final day for public comments on New Jersey's draft Energy Master Plan, join us for a march from Bordentown, NJ (near SRL pipeline construction) to Trenton (where our key decision makers work). We are demanding a halt on SRL pipeline construction and an immediate moratorium on all new fossil fuel projects in NJ. RSVP here!
Governor Murphy wants New Jersey to use 100% clean energy by 2050. Scientific data tells us we need to get off fossil fuels even sooner, or else we are headed to climate catastrophe. There are 15 proposed fracked gas projects in the state of New Jersey, we are not going to achieve any climate goals if we allow these projects to move forward. The Southern Reliability Link (SRL) fracked gas pipeline started construction after our collective call for a moratorium on fossil fuel projects and on Governor Murphy's watch. Even if the pipeline never gets turned on the ecological damage from construction will already be done if the pipeline continues getting built.
