    The NJ DEP as well as the BPU are 2 State regulatory agencies that Have been rigged to serve Mr. Christie.

    DEP is not interested in protecting the environment or the health of citizens that will be breathing in the Ultra Fine Particles ( UFP's) emitted when fracked gas is combusted.

    The Board of Public Utilities (BPU) showed who they served when they approved the Pipeline through the Pinelands and mandated that it was to be paid for by the ratepayers.

    With studies suggesting that UFP's are likely linked to Dementia, MS and Parkinson's it is clear:
    In the Soprano State profits trump protecting public health.

    Regrettably this article does not provide analysis of the perils posed especially the escalating Climate Crisis. The scientists predict Greenland's Glaciers will be melted by 2017 unless we immediately stop extracting fossil fuels. Repowering Bl England with fracked gas is no different then Nero fiddling while Rome burned!
