NO to LNG

February 10, 2011

So, the other day Chris Christie did something…. GOOD and beyond that, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY! Yay! Christie vetoed Liberty Natural Gas’ Liquefied Natural Gas proposal for development off of the central NJ coast. This could have been hugely detrimental to coastal and ocean ecosystems, which is one of the major reasons why ENGOs Clean Ocean Action and Surfrider Foundation have been battling the proposal for so long.

One downfall to the veto is that it does not cover the proposed pipeline that would go through central Jersey and end in Linden, which has its own set of environmental issues. However, I think Christie deserves a thank you… and maybe even a hug.
