Bummer: New Jersey In Danger Of Missing Their Climate (scam) Goals

First off, have you ever been to NJ? This is a state that could not function without fossil fuels, even more than most. The massive commuting to north Jersey, NYC, Philly. All the tourism down to the Shore, Atlantic City, Cape May. All the ships that come into the Port of Newark. Heck, all the people driving through NJ north and south. Second, whose goals? Do all the citizens of NJ agree, or, is this just being driven by activists and politicians?

N.J. in danger of missing Murphy’s climate change goals, environmentalists say

New Jersey is in danger of missing Gov. Phil Murphy’s goals to combat climate change if the governor’s administration doesn’t stop fossil fuel projects it has approved and act more quickly to install regulations, according to a new report from a coalition of environmentalists.

Murphy, a Democrat, has set a goal of cutting emissions 50% by 2030 and 100% by 2050 in New Jersey, a coastal state that has been battered by major storms in recent years. He also signed an environmental justice law in 2020 to protect vulnerable communities from pollution.

But the report from EmpowerNJ — which has taken Murphy’s administration to court to push for more action on climate change — estimates the Garden State’s emissions have increased by 19% from six fossil fuel projects the state has approved the last four years.

Hmm, has Murphy reduced his own use of fossil fuels? Right, right, he takes long private jet trips to Italy.

The group also warns emissions could increase another 38% if seven pending projects are approved and completed before Murphy’s second term is up in January 2026.

The state’s progress in implementing Murphy’s goal for 100% clean energy by the middle of the century has also been “painfully slow,” with “many missed deadlines and regulatory proposals that put that vision in jeopardy,” the coalition said.

The seven pending projects include a new natural gas pipeline and a natural gas export terminal in South Jersey, a new power plant in Newark, and expansions of the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway.

This makes Warmists very upset, and they do not care if they inconvenience everyone else, nor skyrocket their cost of energy.

State Sen. Anthony Bucco, R-Morris said “I don’t think anyone is against New Jersey utilizing renewable energy sources.”

“The problem is that the Governor wants to mandate an aggressive energy plan that gives little consideration to the crushing costs upon seniors, low income families and the middle class, leaving fewer dollars for retirement, a needed car repair, or college savings for their kids,” Bucco said.

Pretty much.

    The Governor’s goals, huh? What are goals? They are targets, they are attempts to achieve something, but that raises the obvious question: what happens if those goals aren’t achieved? Will Mr Murphy and the state legislators be fined, or go to prison?

    No, of course not! It’s easy to make promises or set goals that you will never be kept. That’s what politicians do.

    The cost of renewables goes down each year.
    Fossil fuels?

      That is a lie and all renewables are major pollutants.

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      The cost od renweables does not go down every year. Especially if you consider the unintended consequences, the job loss, the tax increases and the debit increases.

      Where do you get these silly statistics? Please cite!

      FJB and his idiot cabinet.

      The unreliability of renewables stays the same. Fossil fuels? Still reliable
