Wind power coming to Jersey shore
The Sierra Club knows that New Jersey citizens would like to see offshore wind power developed in the state, and now they’re not being shy about using that fact to turn up the heat on Gov. Chris Christie.
A new poll [PDF] shows the 75 percent of the public supports building wind power off the state’s coast, compared to just 13 percent opposed. The club has begun using full-page newspaper ads and highway billboards to try to transform that substantial – but often quiet – support into real pressure on Christie.
