The objective is simple:  NO Gas Pipeline!

Spectra Energy built a major natural gas pipeline expansion to New York City that runs through the heart of Jersey City.  Jersey City & NYC will bear tremendous risks with no reward, all for the benefit of Spectra Energy shareholders!

Natural gas pipelines are prone to high risk of leaks that are released as either fine mists of toxic spray or result in fires and explosions that may do significant damage to property and life.

Fracking waste is already being disposed of and treated in New Jersey. Places in PA and OH who previously have accepted fracking waste are now turning it away. This means even more dangerous fracking waste may be coming to New Jersey. -The NJ Senate Environment Committee has posted the fracking waste bill for a vote on June 7!-PLEASE HELP GET CALLS TO THE SENATE ENVIRONMENT COMMITTEE!
Dale Hardman, President of No Gas Pipeline, said "We expected that FERC would rule in favor of Spectra Energy from the start of forming our group in February of 2010 and commented on our site and many times in public, including the last public hearing at Ferris High that the process was rigged, unreasonable, partially funded by the gas industry and FERC a swinging door of oil and gas bureaucrats.-We continue to seek members for our group to aid us before filing a suit to overturn FERC's ruling in Federal District Court."
As a result of questions by intervenors on the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has requested an extension for both the final EIS and FERC's final ruling.
