Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Action Post
Super Easy Contact Link Here E-Mail NJ Governor Chris Christie
Click; Environment, As The Select Email Topic.

If Everyone E-Mails Gov Christie, he'll have a flood of emails.
Then he'll see; that no one wants spectra's dangerous, explosion prone, gas pipeline running from New Jersey to Manhattan's West Village (and further).

Numbers are the only things that politicians understand.

Electronic Protesting, A Very Important Protest Tool.

Anyone can e-mail Gov Christie. It doesn't matter what state you're in.

Just copy/paste this

Governor Christie,

Shut Down spectra energy's natural gas, transportation pipeline in New Jersey And New York City.

This pipeline, is very dangerous and spectra has a terrible safety record.

Easy, takes two minutes.

The Federal Appellate Court will hear the case against spectra energy co's natural gas transportation pipeline.

Jersey City NJ and several environmental groups have a lawsuit being heard this Wednesday in Federal Appeals Court.

spectra gas co thinks that just because they finished building this pipeline (supposedly, I've searched everywhere and there's no real info about how much of it is actually completed that I could find). In that "magical thinking way", that big energy has, that the Court has to agree with them. Not!

The Court Does Not Have To agree with spectra. That's what the Appeals Process is all about.

Guess Somebody Forgot To Tell spectra energy co, That This Is New Jersey And New York, The Cradle Of The American Revolution! From here; all the way south, past Washington DC too.
This so called; "building the pipeline" by spectra, in actuality is, all they did was drill a trench a couple of feet (usually 3) underground and slide a section of pipe in and attach all the sections.
Just leave it there. But shut the pipeline down. Simple.

spectra knew, there was a lawsuit to stop their building this pipeline.

By continuing to build, it makes spectra energy culpable.

I e-mailed New Jersey Governor Christie last night.

I told him that spectra's pipeline was very dangerous and he should shut the pipeline down, below is a copy of what I said.

Governor Christie,

I've contacted you before. Just a reminder because the case is being heard this Wednesday Feb 19, 2014.

I've been documenting the dangers of this pipeline for over 2 years.

I agree with Jersey City's Mayor Healy. It's very dangerous for the NJ/NYC area.

Mayor Healy, is my hero!

They wouldn't even allow a pipeline like this in the Pinelands, but they're gonna run it in the middle of NYC, Jersey City, Hoboken and Bayonne. Makes no sense!

You can be my hero too Governor Christie, Shut Down The Spectra Pipeline. This would be very good for his image.

It's a tax write off for spectra energy co.

This pipeline is not worth the lives of millions of people, for $2.7 million, and $1.3 of it is a bond in case of environmental disaster!

Jersey City, is getting ripped off big time and I'm sure it's the same all over.

Be A Hero Governor Christie!
