As you read this, Secretary Zinke of the Department of Interior, is planning to lease areas of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of New Jersey to oil companies for off-shore drilling. Setting up drilling operations off our coast is an invitation to a man made disaster that would dwarf Sandy recovery and impact every aspect of our life. An oil spill off our coast could decimate our tourism and fishing industries. Maybe you own a home or business on the shore. Maybe you look forward to visiting our beaches in the summer. Even with out the disaster of a spill – there’s still the disasters brought by extreme weather and climate change. We don’t need the additional pollution from extraction process, or more oil at a time when solar or wind energy are gaining steam and are more affordable. This is bad business no matter how you look at it, and our shore is at stake.
Add your voice and your story – we can’t make it easy for the Department of Interior to destroy our community. Take Action!
