Serial protesters operating under multiple names are behind an utterly despicable environmental racism protest against a natural gas power plant SEPTA plans.
Bet you didn’t know that the environment has become racist. That’s the outrageous claim being made about Nicetown, PA (near Philadelphia). Big Green supporters in Nicetown are opposed to SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) plans to build a Marcellus gas-powered electric plant that would provide electricity to SEPTA’s northern Regional Rail lines and a bus garage. The stated reason for their opposition is because the plant will burn an evil, nasty, vile “fossil fuel.”
Yep, fossil fuel hatred syndrome. When the antis weren’t looking, Philadelphia Air Management Services (AMS) went ahead and issued th... that allows SEPTA to move forward with the proposed natgas power plant, which will get built in Nicetown. Nice. The AMS vote “came as a surprise” to the antis. It was their “last hope” to stop the plant. But they haven’t given up hope. Not yet.
