On Monday August 24, 2020, Tracy Carluccio of the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, along with LWVDE Environmental Committee Chair Coralie Pryde, presented to the League of Women Voters on the following Hot Topic: "Will Liquified Natural Gas and Other Flammable Hydrocarbons be Exported Via the Delaware River?"
In June 2019 Delawareans learned that Governor Carney had joined other Governors on the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) in voting to allow Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and other flammable hydrocarbons to be shipped out of a port in New Jersey and down the Delaware River. Many of us were surprised and dismayed with concerns about safety and effects on global warming.
The DRBC will soon be re-voting on this issue. Many groups in other states are actively opposing the project. Learn what they are doing and what you can do. This presentation covers background of the proposed Gibbstown NJ port project by Delaware River Partners LLC, concerns particular to Delaware, and a discussion of possible actions that can be taken by those opposed to the project.
