After a two year fight, we’re proud to say our voices have been heard and the dangerous and unnecessary Port Ambrose Liquified Natural Gas proposal was vetoed by the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo.
This facility was to be built in the bay between NY and NJ and would’ve posed many environmental as well as safety risks to citizens of both states while providing little benefit to either. Surfrider, along with countless other organizations, fought hard over the past couple years to prevent this project from coming to fruition, and with the swipe of a pen, Gov. Cuomo has settled the matter. Thank you to everyone that came out and voiced their opposition to this project. Below is a video of Governor Cuomo’s speech.
It’s time once again to rally for one final stand against the unnecessary, unwanted, and pointless proposed liquid natural gas facility off the coast of New Jersey. We made our presence felt the last time around and we need a big turnout on November 4th and 5th at the Sheraton Hotel in Eatontown, NJ.
The official public meeting on the Port Ambrose LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) offshore facility is Thursday, January 8 at 6 pm in the Eatontown Sheraton on Rte. 35. This will be our chance to let our elected officials know how we feel about this dangerous project that could seriously affect our coastline. Make sure you’re in attendance if you want your voice to be heard on this important issue.
