Take Action! Please sign the petition to Governor Murphy calling on a moratorium on all new fossil fuel infrastructure projects in New Jersey.
I urge you to enact an immediate moratorium on all new fossil fuel infrastructure projects in New Jersey, including gas-fired power plants, pipelines and compressor stations.
Dirty energy infrastructure releases carcinogenic toxins; CO2, the most common greenhouse gas; and methane, the most potent gas, which traps heat in the atmosphere at 87 times the rate of CO2 in a 20-year time frame. We must immediately cut our greenhouse gas emissions if we are serious about combating climate change and meeting your goal of 100% clean renewable energy by 2050, or surpassing it with a more ambitious goal of 100% renewable energy by 2035.
The new fossil fuel projects being proposed in our state are unneeded, hurt the environment and our health, and are against the interests of New Jersey residents, who overwhelmingly support a rapid transition to clean, renewable energy.
