On Sunday, December 19, Medford Meeting approved a resolution opposing plans to transport liquid natural gas (LNG) – fracked gas – by rail and truck from Pennsylvania to Gibbstown, NJ, for export. Meeting members voiced strong support for the resolution, recognizing the project as both an environmental justice and a climate change issue. Copies of the resolution were sent to Governor Murphy, President Biden, and the Army Corps of Engineers. Medford Meeting is now the 13th civic/religious group in New Jersey to adopt a resolution opposing the Gibbstown terminal project. Medford Meeting is partnering with Food and Water Watch, a DC based organization; they are encouraging other organizations to request that Governor Murphy and his administration rescind current permits and deny any new permits for the terminal project. Local governments in Princeton, Pennsauken, Runnemede, Haddon Township, Riverton, Hazlet, Burlington City, and Merchantville have also adopted resolutions.
