Guests: John Moor, Cindy Zipf
New Jersey passed the one of the toughest offshore drilling bans in the nation in April. It was in response to the Trump administration’s decision to open most U.S. coastal waters to gas and oil drilling. The New Jersey law bans drilling or construction of pipelines or rigs along the state’s coast, three miles out, which it controls. This week, republicans in Congress introduced a bill that would fine states that prohibit drilling off their shores. We’ll talk about the Garden State ban, what other states are doing to protect their coastlines and how it will impact the oil industry with Mayor of Asbury Park, JOHN MOOR, executive director of Clean Ocean Action CINDY ZIPF, and THOMAS PYLE, president of the Institute for Energy Research and the American Energy Alliance.
