Stop the Pipeline!

    1. Petition by

      Concerned Citizen

      New York, NY


Sane Energy Project was formed in January 2011 to stop the Spectra pipeline. 

Spectra Energy is proposing a 30-42" high-pressure natural gas pipeline to run through Northern New Jersey, Staten Island and under the Hudson River, entering Manhattan at the Sanitation Pier by Gansevoort Street and the West Side Highway, in conjunction with a natural gas storage vault. This pipeline would be similar in size and pressure rating to the destructive and deadly San Bruno, CA pipeline, which exploded in September 2010, destroying 37 houses and killing 8 people.

This Spectra pipeline is unnecessary. This would not bring "energy independence" to the city as Mayor Bloomberg purports.  We are not willing to risk the health, security and environmental safety of our city and populace for corporate gain.

Sane Energy Project opposes the development, transport and export of shale gas. We  support investment in renewable energy and the goal of zero carbon dependence by 2030. 

Please sign our petition which will be delivered to the relevant politicians and help us stop the Spectra pipeline.  Thanks!

      It all comes down to self-determination. It is clear that this pipeline is being shoved down our collective throats in a "business- as- usual" underhanded manner. Natural gas advocates pretend this is a "transitional fuel" but the pretense will be hard to keep up in light of the already approved natural gas power plant planned for Astoria Queens at the cost of $1.4 billion. The 99% would never allow it! Great article to read about this:

      The pipeline is a deadly idea.

      This pipeline will do irreparable damage to both communities and ecosystems in some of the most fantastic lands in America. To go forward with it would be an atrocity and an embarrassment, particularly when money and resources would be far better spent investing in safe, clean technology.
