Gov. Christie, the people have spoken: "NJ wants a Clean Energy Future, Don't pull NJ From RGGI!"

    1. Petition by

      North Jersey Public Policy Network

 UPDATE: “The NJ legislature has successfully passed a bill for NJ to remain in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). However, Gov. Christie has stated that he will veto this bill.  Let’s renew our efforts at letting Christie know that NJ has spoken. The people of NJ want to participate in RGGI. Call Gov. Christie at 609-292-6000 or 609-777-2500 and tell his staff you want NJ to remain involved with R GGI.Do Not veto the bill, Governor!

Thank you for you support!! If you haven't yet, PLEASE do sign the petition and send it out to your networks!”

Governor, since your announcement to pull NJ from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) on May 26th, over 10,000 citizens have signed petitions demanding that NJ stay in RGGI. The NJ Legislature passed bills at the end of June committing NJ to stay in RGGI.  RGGI has been good for NJ business and good for NJ citizens, it has lowered greenhouse gas pollution and supported and promoted clean, renewable energy in NJ. Governor, RGGI is good for NJ. The people of NJ want a clean energy future and RGGI helps provide this! We want NJ to stay in RGGI, why aren't you listening?

There is no cost to NJ residents to participate/cooperate with RGGI. RGGI has produced results and harms no business or individual. This is not a Republican or Democratic issue - it is an everyman/citizen issue. Most New Jerseyans understand we are experiencing climate change. The data and science support this. There will always be the few who believe the world is flat but catering to misinformation is not leadership.

Governor Christie, reconsider your decision.  NJ citizens, enviornmental and public policy groups and the state legislature have spoken. Keep NJ in RGGI and show us you are listening to what the people of NJ want and thay you too care about clean air, clean energy and a clean future for all of the people of New Jersey.
