Not sure how surviving on water and no food for two weeks will “save the planet,” but it’s always good for some virtue signaling.
….A coalition of environmental groups gathered outside of the State House on Wednesday to announce the start of Climate Fast NJ, a two-week-long protest fast aimed at pressuring Murphy to take more immediate action on climate change….
“The climate crisis is the defining moral and economic issue of our time, and every new piece of dirty energy infrastructure makes this crisis worse,” said Matt Smith, a senior organizer for the activist group Food & Water Watch. “Governor Murphy has made some early moves on clean energy, but they will get us nowhere if he approves the fossil fuel projects driving us towards catastrophe.”
About 30 people have committed to the fast, though to varying degrees. Only two, Bloomfield activist Ted Glick and a member of the Ramapough Lenape Nation named Owl, will go on water only for the full 14 days.
