Senator O’Scanlon discusses the storm and JCP&L’s response

By Senator Declan O’Scanlon

Senator Declan O’Scanlon

For those who didn’t lose power, or see the fury of Monday night’s storm, be thankful. Your lives went on like a normal summer day with a thunderstorm in the background.  For those who were in the micro-bursts…it was the scariest thing many have seen since Sandy..and more than many of us have ever seen. It lasted 20 minutes through the area…but left more immediate wind devastation than Sandy. Sandy spent hours piling water into our Bayshore and bays and oceanfront. This unnamed…moment…tore down trees and utility poles and the wires near, or attached to, them. And it was block-by-block, neighborhood by neighborhood.  Which made it even harder on those without power. Many neighbors had no inconvenience at all.  I can say now, it was a miracle no one was seriously injured or killed.  For those that didn’t see it, trust me, this isn’t hyperbole.

In the end over 200,000 people had no power. Trees were down. JCP&L on the scramble, tested again.  By Thursday night, all but just over 200 customers in Monmouth County had their power restored.

Pallone Embraces Green New Deal

Congressman Frank Pallone, Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, has embraced the Green New Deal promoted by freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  Pallone’s “100% clean economy” with net-zero carbon emissions is “aggressively” targeted to be achieved by 2050, twenty years following the end of AOC’s world.

With a nod to The Squad, Pallone and six other Democrats on his committee held a press conference in Washington on Tuesday in an effort to convince the world that 2050 is the point of no return from climate change, not 2030, as AOC insists.  Read the rest of this entry »
