You might have seen this ad, from PSEG or on their website, “NJ Needs Nuclear . com” “It’s Cheaper to Keep Air Pollution-Free Nuclear Power than to Replace It,” the ad claims. And that is true. It’s also cheaper to drive a 10, 15, or 20 year old car than replace with a new one. Instead of a monthly car payment you have maintenance payments – new tires every 8 years or every 80,000 miles, whichever comes first, annual engine tune-ups. Here’s the flip side of the ad. “Dramatic Increases in Carbon Emissions … other fuels like coal for electricity would increase air pollution.” But what about solar and wind? “Increased Risk of Power Outages.” Actually, this is not verifiable. And a careful reading of these articles at Power Engineering, and CNBC suggest that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, NRC, requires nuclear plants to be shut down in the face of oncoming hurricanes. So maintaining … [Read more...] about New Jersey & Nuclear. Perfect Together?

(Natural News) Phil Murphy, New Jersey’s governor, has recently signed “an executive order for broader medical marijuana access.”Jake Honig, a seven-year-old boy who died last January due to a rare bone cancer, seems to have moved the governor to make this particular decision. Jake, who received the nickname “Jake the Tank” because of the strength he showed during a five-year battle with bone cancer, was in remission for three years. However, his cancer came back, and he passed away last month.The Honig family was hoping that changes would soon be made to current medical marijuana laws. They were also imploring their community to send letters to lawmakers so that Jake could have had easier access to the medication that helped him deal with his cancer.Two days after Jake’s death, his parents, Mike and Janet, and Gianna, his six-year-old sister, stood beside Governor Murphy as he signed the executive order.

New Jersey’s Pine Barrens is the place of legends. Kids growing up in the Garden State hear tales of the Jersey Devil, a strange beast that was long-rumored to live somewhere in the heavily forested region, along with stories of ghosts and abandoned villages and sightings of carnivorous plants and wild orchids.The Pine Barrens consists of 1.1 million acres of protected, open space, a real rarity in the country’s most densely populated state. The Barrens recharges a 17 trillion (yes, t for trillion) gallon freshwater aquifer and boasts a specialized microclimate that creates short periods of frost, and the “sugar sand” and low levels of development mean the woods can get very, very cold at night, but still have a short frost season.The Pine Barrens covers part of seven counties in the state and make up 22% of New Jersey’s land area. At one point there were sawmills and charcoal-making and glass factories deep in the pines. An intrepid hiker today can find … [Read more...] about Could An Invasive Species Actually Save New Jersey’s Iconic Pine Barrens?
(Natural News) Experts have released guidelines on how to protect yourself from carbon monoxide poisoning following the tragic death of a 13-year old girl in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.Major winter storms heighten the risk of poisoning — with people turning up the heat to cope with the weather. However, the same heating devices also produce fumes that contain carbon monoxide. If the room or area is not properly ventilated, this odorless, tasteless, and colorless gas builds up, which can ultimately lead to serious consequences.In an article that appeared in Newswise, Dr. Diane Calello, executive of the New Jersey Poison Control Center, explained that “severe weather often results in illness and deaths from hypothermia and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, as well as exposures to a variety of substances.”If there’s a silver lining to this, it’s that people can do something to prevent exposure to the gas. “Rest assured that the … [Read more...] about Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning this winter: Expert provides tips in wake of multiple illnesses (and a death) in New Jersey
