Jamaica Bay Ecowatchers on Proposed Pipeline (and other links)
Writing a blog is not unlike sidewalk preaching in that it's a somewhat crazy thing to do. So I'm quite sure that my own writings on the proposed gas pipeline project through Gateway National Recreation Area will not have much significance. Thankfully, there are however longtime environmental activists in the area, like Don Riepe and Dan Mundy (featured in the NY Times article link) that may be able to make a difference in the matter. The Jamaica Bay Ecowatchers and the Jamaica Bay Research and Management Information Network are two places that I will be going for updates on the project. I expect Ned Berke's excellent independent news blog Sheepshead Bites will provide ongoing news coverage even if other press never picks up the story.
According to the information at Jamaica Bay Ecowatchers, the pipeline and the lack of public outreach will be a topic at the April 4th Jamaica Bay Taskforce Meeting. If you are reading this please follow the link to Jamaica Bay Ecowatchers info on the pipeline.
