New Jersey legislators have proposed a constitutional Green Amendment that will recognize and protect the rights of all the people of the state, including future generations, to pure water, clean air, a stable climate and healthy environments.
For decades, communities have relied on Federal and State laws to ensure protection of a clean environment. And for decades, while achieving some important successes in environmental protection, overall, the health of our environment for present and future generations has continued to degrade. Currently, our laws are designed to accommodate pollution rather than to prevent it. But there is a solution for achieving better, and much needed, protection of our environment, and that is to turn to the ultimate authority—our state and federal constitutions.
We all have the right to pure water, clean air, and a healthy environment. It’s time to focus on how to truly secure that right for our own sake and that of future generations. What would a Green Amendment mean for the state of New Jersey? What is its impact to stewardship and environmental justice? What can you do to help?
