of greenhouse gases every year, in an era of rising sea levels.

"MONSTER OF POLLUTION"

These types of plants are monsters of air pollution in New Jersey emitting heavy metals and chemicals like ammonia and nitrogen oxide.

This would be built on a flood-prone Superfund site

More pollution disproportionately impacting low-income communities in Kearny, Newark, and Jersey City adds to public health costs.

THE ALTERNATIVE

A solar farm ...
... combined with battery storage

will provide clean energy without adding greenhouse gases that are triggering sea level rise, flooding, and giant storms that are the threats to our transit system.
