Shut Down-spectra's natural gas transportation pipeline in New Jersey And New York City!

Or; It Ain't Over, Till It's Over.
Stop spectra!

♥For My Grandfather Michael Murphy. He worked on the Central Railroad; (in Jersey City), 100 years ago. Unloading box cars with a big hook. He and his fellow workers, sweltered in the summer and froze in the winter!

Contact New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie

Contact New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo

Contact President Obama

Tell them; STOP, the spectra pipeline!

The spectra pipeline is expected to pump 800 million cubic feet of gas a day, starting in Linden, NJ (Bayway Refinery). Eventually making its way to Manhattan.

November 2 2013
Thirteen people were arrested for blocking the West Side Highway adjacent to the site where Spectra Energy has completed a pipeline entering Manhattan from New Jersey.

In December 2012, Jersey City filed a lawsuit in Federal Court to halt construction of spectra's proposed pipeline.

This suit, hasn't been heard by the court yet. I read the news every day awaiting the Court's decision so I know it hasn't been settled yet. Jersey City is still waiting the Federal Courts pending decision concerning the overturning of FERC's decision.

The Danger

Incredibly; spectra wants to run the Manhattan portion of the pipeline from, Liberty State Park in Jersey City, past the Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Castle Garden (War of 1812 Era Fort Clinton And America's first immigrant receiving center), The Holland Tunnel, The New Jersey Turnpike, etc and off Hoboken's pristine shoreline, into Manhattan's West Village. Spectra laying a pipeline to bring FRACKED gas into the West Village Really Scary! This is crazy!

On June 28 2012, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted approval to spectra to proceed with construction of the pipeline and ok'd spectra's original proposal.

Construction and testing are finished. Now this gas pipeline will go into service next month, with gas flowing  through Bayonne, Jersey City and offshore Hoboken.

spectra and con ed plan to bring fracked gas, laced with radon, into New York via a new explosive, high pressure pipeline. This is bad for the environment and bad for New Yorkers.


From Bayonne to Hoboken, spectra's controversial natural gas transportation pipeline is expected to start pumping gas November 1st by Joseph R. Vena/The Jersey Journal October 24, 2013

I wrote this diary because I love New York City, Jersey City and they really turned Hoboken into a beautiful city. I have many friends in Manhattan and Jersey City.

I don't know how spectra got a permit for this project to begin with.

Considering the large number of people all over Jersey City, NYC and with the West Village's congestion, allowing spectra's gas pipeline in this densely populated area, is totally reckless and irresponsible!
