Week of Action to stop LNG Export

Calling for Help to Stop Fracked Gas LNG Export from Gibbstown NJ!

The proposal to export fracked Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from the Gibbstown Export Terminal will probably be decided on December 9. We must let the Commissioners who will vote on whether to approve the export of LNG from this Delaware River port know what the people think about this reckless proposal. We are inviting you to take part in A Week of Action to Stop the LNG Port!

Take action through different means every day from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4!

The Week of Action to Stop the LNG Port provides different ways to speak to the Delaware River Basin Commission to oppose the Gibbstown LNG Export terminal and tell them to VOTE NO to stop the project. There’s a different action for each day kicking off November 30 and culminating on Friday, December 4 when we submit to the Commissioners – the Governors of New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware, the voting members of the DRBC - our collective submission voicing why we oppose the proposed LNG export.

We are also kicking off the Week of Action with a Virtual Rally on Monday, November 30th at 7:30 pm. Please register now for the virtual rally.

THE WEEK OF ACTION – links to tool kits will be provided for each day as we approach the dates

The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) is considering approval of a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Gibbstown, NJ on the Delaware River, just downriver from Philadelphia and too close to tens of thousands of people in the region. The proposed Gibbstown LNG Export Terminal would take fracked gas from Pennsylvania, liquefy the methane at a plant the company plans to build in Wyalusing, Bradford County, PA, transport it using hundreds of trucks and/or railcars every day through communities for ~200 miles to Gibbstown for export overseas. New Fortress Energy is pushing the DRBC to approve the project despite its huge environmentally destructive footprint and the extreme danger that LNG poses to public safety. DRBC is charged with protecting the water and resources of the Delaware River Watershed; to fulfill that mission the proposed LNG export terminal project (“Dock 2”) must be rejected. It is up to us, the public, to tell the DRBC Commissioners - the Governors of NJ, NY, PA, and DE - to listen to us, not the special interests who aim to exploit the watershed for their own benefit.
