Mark your calendar! As all life is interconnected - so is all new destructive fossil fuel infrastructure connected to threatening Mother Earth and all life with the reality of climate change.
We should be planning, permitting and implementing renewable energy, not planning and building new fracked gas power plants. An out of state corporation is proposing a massive power plant for North Bergen, NJ to send electricity to NYC.
The power plant would more than double the air pollution already caused by the PSEG Bergen Generating Plant, producing particulate matter and ground level ozone, both of which cause chronic heart and lung disease. The plant would also threaten the environment of the Wetlands region, and would be one of the largest sources of green house gas emissions in NJ for decades to come.
Save The Date: Rally in Ridgefield to Stop The Meadowlands Power Plant proposal!
When: Tuesday, Oct. 23rd from 4-6pm
Where: 977 Edgewater Ave. (intersection of Edgewater Ave. and Broad Ave. in Ridgefield)
