HONORABLE MENTION – Best Activist Film – Toronto Beaches Film Festival
The Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) Pipeline is a fracked gas pipeline proposed by Tulsa-based energy company Williams. It would run through Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and the waters off of Staten Island, Brooklyn, and the Rockaways.
The seabed that would be trenched for this pipeline contains toxic substances like arsenic, lead, and PCBs that would end up in our water.
The pipeline is projected to cost almost a billion dollars—which could end up being shouldered by consumers.
