Keep the Frack Out of Our Water!

Hydraulic Fracturing, better known as fracking, which injects millions of gallons of water mixed with toxic chemicals, into the ground horizontally breaking up the bed rock to obtain natural gas. This may be one of the biggest risks to our water and our environment. The New Jersey Sierra Club has been working diligently to fight fracking from completely banning fracking in NJ & banning fracking wastewater from coming into our state.

The End of a Coal Era?

The 100th coal plant since 2010 -- GenOn Generation Station in Portland, PA -- has announced plans for retirement!

We are winning as city by city, communities are standing up and saying no to coal and yes to clean energy. Public officials and energy utilities are realizing the economics and health problems caused by our addiction to coal just don't add up.

Let's continue this trend by adding more coal plants to this list and to promote a clean energy future!

This plant is the largest source of pollution in Northwest New Jersey causing not only environmental problems, but also affecting the health of the community around the plant. With this terrific news now the people of New Jersey and the country can breathe easier. Not only that, but our efforts have led to the equivalent of 11 million homes powered throughout the nation by clean energy! This amazing milestone, no doubt one of many to come, represents the hard work of our allies and thousands and thousands of concerned residents just like you!

NJ Chapter Achievements

  • Preserving Natural Habitats
    Years of work by the NJ Chapter paid off with the preservation of the 392-acre Petty's Island, located in the heart of the Delaware River Estuary. The island, which is home to wildlife like bald eagles and herons, was official preserved on Earth Day 2009 to serve as an ecological, cultural, and historical preserve.

    After a 10 year battle, the Windy Acres site was purchased as Green Acres. The site, adjacent to the Round Valley Reservoir in Clinton, was being considered for a residential development but is now preserved open space. We helped stop a 400-plus condominium development proposed to be built on 180 acres of open space next to Jockey Hollow National Historic Park in Morris Township.

    We won a local victory in Clinton, after successful grassroots campaign that stopped the construction of an office building next to Spruce Run Reservoir. The same members in were active in the fight to prevent a 172-acre truck depot from being built in Warren County.
