The proposed facility threatens residents of nearby communities, as an accident there could endanger the lives of tens of thousands of New Jerseyans.
Plus, opening this facility would likely increase the demand for fracked natural gas in New Jersey by providing a convenient place to export that gas. There is no reason for New Jerseyans to endure poisoned water and air so that other countries can benefit from cheap American natural gas.
New Jersey already has enough trouble with pollution; we have high ozone, particulates, etc., as well as landfills and polluted water. We have a high population density. We could be using the resources that it would take to build this facility to build off-shore windmills, install solar panels on building roofs and in brownfields, and do something that would actually improve our public health instead of endangering it—especially as it would largely be for the benefit of for-profit fossil-fuel firms, not our residents.
Please represent my interests and nip this misguided project in the bud!
