The bulk of the electricity consumed in New Jersey is generated by coal-fired and nuclear power plants, which generate global warming pollution and radioactive waste. Generating power by using fossil fuels or nuclear power imposes unbearable costs on our environment, our health, and our economy. The Environmental Case for Wind Power in New Jersey argues that instead of increasing our dependence on dangerous, polluting power sources, New Jersey should tap into clean, sustainable energy resources such as wind power.
