Natural Gas works. If it didn't, we wouldn't be building new pipelines. But if you're skeptical of how safe this form of energy is, you'll want to hear what Pat Kornick of PennEast Pipeline Company has to say.

What are your thoughts on the PennEast pipeline?

Jay, a 22-year-old caller in Metuchen said while he loves insects, we should prioritize our energy needs over studying a single species in the wild.

Michelle, a 48-year-old from Kingwood says she opposes the pipelines and would like to see how Pat would feel if the pipeline went through her yard.

Patty, a 55-year-old caller who lives in Hopewell said New Jersey has no shortage of gas, and installing a natural gas pipeline will merely shift the production burden onto landowners.

Scott, a 47-year-old who lives in Morrisville, PA said the carbon footprint of naturally occurring gas isn't that bad, so using this fuel isn't the environmental threat some people think it is.
