A strange way to show support

The FERC posted 9 rather odd submissions today. They were images of postcards people apparently were given by PennEast. They filled out their contact info and a checkbox saying they support PennEast. It’s all rather…well, let me just show you:


They’re all post marked the same day so I’m guessing these either were solicited from one of the scoping meetings or else someone gave them to PennEast.

The logo on the top says “I support safe clean affordable locally produced natural gas to energize my community!”.

Oh boy.

You can see the submission from above here:

I'm a thinker, an analyzer, a synthesizer. Maybe not in that order. I live in West Amwell NJ with my wife Kristina, our two kids Day and Z, our two dogs Fern and Cinna, and three cats Ponce de Leon, Oliver, and Doolittle.

One thought on “A strange way to show support

  1. These postcards could also have been given out at a union meeting for one of the unions short-sightedly supporting the pipeline, or at one of the companies that will profit from it. I have been at meetings where such postcards were given out to support a particular political agenda, and all you have to do is sign it and someone takes care of mailing or delivering. It is a way to generate numbers and to engage those too uninformed to actually write something cohesive to appear to be supporting your cause. There is usually subtle pressure or not so subtle pressure to take one and sign it.
