Phil Murphy on Environment

 

 


Protect Jersey Shore from oil & Pinelands' open space

Phil understands that enjoying the Jersey Shore is a birthright for all New Jerseyans. That is why it is essential that we work with federal authorities to continue to protect the Shore from damaging storms. A more resilient Jersey Shore can thrive if we work hard to protect it. With the Trump Administration threatening to drill everywhere, we also need to be vigilant to protect the Shore from the possibility of oil drilling off our coast. Working with our federal delegation, Phil will be a leader to prevent oil spills from damaging our multibillion tourism and fishing economies.

As the most densely populated state in the nation, Phil understands that preserving our open space is essential. Phil will stop the practice of diverting constitutionally-dedicated open space funding away from its intended purpose. He will also depoliticize key environmental staff & commissions--including those that protect the Highlands and Pinelands--and restore New Jersey as a leader in smart planning.

Commit to protecting shores with long-term enviro plan

Model environmental policy after Europe:

Murphy is no stranger to Europe, working there both as an ambassador and during his career at Goldman Sachs. When asked what he would do to "protect" the coasts, he suggested "dreaming and taking risks." He specifically lauded the Netherlands for their commitment to protecting their shores. "They don't have the pipeline discussion we have. They didn't have a discussion about the governor pulling us out of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative," Murphy said. "They walk the talk and are prepared."

He said the next governor should "put the brakes" on Christie's policies, but needs to be comfortable with long-term environmental policy planning: "They should be comfortable with the fact that many of these effects won't happen for years," he said.
