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. A representative from Delaware Riverkeeper will provide background and Coralie Pryde will discuss concerns particular to Delaware. An open discussion of possible actions will follow.

Send any questions for the speakers to Coralie Pryde
