[Updated Aug 16th]

This is the story; big gas, oil, coal, etc. doesn't want anyone to hear.

I became extremely worried when I first read about spectra oil's proposed natural gas pipeline last December and started writing diaries about  what they were attempting to do.

Then I read that NJ State Commission had given spectra the permits to start this pipeline. And Passion Struck!

Writing the Aug 4th diary; (next link), wasn't as easy as it looked and I needed to delete it twice.

So I wrote this diary to explain where it went. Then; oh no, I had copied the wrong diary link into this post last week and no one could find it, again.

I know people are looking for it. I had quite a few shares. Here it finally is, again. For real, the last edit.

This is the correct link. Stop Spectra's (Long-Haul Transportation), Gas Pipeline In NJ & NY!


Protest the future that big gas, oil, coal, etc, have planned for us. We've already had enough of their destruction in the past! Mountaintop Removal, Strip And Longwall Mining, Gas Fracking, An American Tragedy!

This time it's really finished. I promise; no more, looking for this diary and not finding it. It's Time To Stop The Ravaging Of Our Planet and let's start right here!

Like I said, I Love Kossacks. You always help me. And The Statue Of Liberty Thanks You For Your Activism

spectra's attempted hostile takeover of New Jersey And New York is a story that has to be heard.

I've been working on this spectra gas pipeline issue for many months and it's a really informative diary. Especially if you live in Jersey City, Hoboken or Lower Manhattan, (NYC). I don't know if the people in Bayonne want this pipeline or not. No one else wants anything to do with it.

This diary, is now 1,000% better than it originally was. A lot of my inspiration is from comments by Kossacks and I learn so much reading your diaries too. Thanks; for all your rec's, tips, supportive and informative comments.

i Love Kossacks You all, have taught me so much over the past four years about how to write concisely, edit, punctuate and highlight. Kossacks taught me that presentation is everything!

I had a very heavy cold last week and for some reason was doing my updates in the comment section.

I started one there in response to a really great comment, from Beach Babe. It was good and it was fine where it was.

Then I had a great video; (I should know better than to put videos where they can't be deleted), and then this totally, totally, horrible commercial showed up on it. After I'd posted of course. So I re-posted and deleted original.

Then I did the same thing again. This time my comment was too important to just be in comments where everyone might not read it, and it needed to be in text. So I re-posted and deleted original again. Finally; I realized, don't do updates in the comment section.

Then I saw, what a mess it was from all the updating. And have been editing for the past 7 days.

For My Grandfather Michael Murphy. He worked on the Central Railroad; (in Jersey City), 100 years ago. Unloading box cars with a big hook. He and his fellow workers, sweltered in the summer and froze in the winter.

And; Also. To Help My Friends

screw spectra. They want to put a long-haul gas pipeline in NJ/NY Harbor, under the Statue of Liberty, or very close to it!

I'm sure I read in one of the articles; under Liberty Island, at this point I can't find it. Bit It's there in my diary. It's all there.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      Did you read the diary about spectra gas I had in my link?

      I've been writing this diary for months.

      Then I read on; (the Jersey Journal newspaper online), that spectra has gotten as far as, approved permits.

      I couldn't believe it! As illustrated in my diary, [Updated Again] Stop spectra's (Long-Haul Transportation)-Gas Pipeline In NJ & NY. The link in the above text of diary.

      Jersey City will be challenging this state commission approval in court.

      I searched out; the federally protected, environmental, historical sites, etc issues, in an effort to understand how spectra got these permits?

      If you are interested in NJ/NY Ecology and Historical Sites read the diary Murphoney.  

      spectra's pipeline; is another crazy idea, by big gas, crony to big oil, and of course the ever looming gas fracking and xl tar sands.

      spectra is trying to sneak in the back door.
      You know they will keep trying it on. And we have to resist them at every move!

      They think, we poor people won't even notice till it's too late. We noticed.

    •  I was just reading this diay, again. (0+ / 0-)

      Now I see why you said huh(?), Murphoney.

      I had the wrong link for the spectra diary. I fixed it. It's the correct link now. The link I had was to this diary. Darn, I must have been really tired.

      This is a story that needs to be told and I will follow it, until we win! And we will win!

    Maybe the routing for the pipeline was because there were less landowners to deal with? Maybe dealing with the state for permission to cross Liberty State Park was seen as possible, when dealing with homeowners and industries that own the land around it was not? Maybe they thought that the road closings and utility shut-offs inherent in working in city streets would be too expensive? I know, it's not like the gas company can't afford it, but I'm trying to figure out their logic. Again, just speculation on my part, but I've been thinking about this trying to understand their decision.

    •  Actually, spectra will be running the pipeline, (0+ / 0-)

      through the streets of Jersey City.

      spectra executives figure, oh the people are all sheep. We'll just do what we want. Spectra doesn't realize they're in New Jersey and New York now!

      spectra may have gotten a NJ Commissions approval.

      But they can never win in court. There are many protections; for these environmental and historical sites. that contain legal prohibitions that will forbid this pipeline's proposed route.

      ie Where spectra wants to cross into Jersey City, is the old filled in Morris Canal. It is; A, Federally Protected, Registered Historical Site.

      spectra will never be allowed to tunnel across it, by claiming eminent domain.

      I just noticed that. I guess I was more exhausted than I realized. Had a bad cold too.
