Natural Gas NOW
The Delaware Riverkeeper Network is ever more the personal tool of a leader at war against any growth in her own backyard. The Delaware River is irrelevant.
The Delaware Riverkeeper Network is supposed to be a 501(c)3 charity. It is, in reality, a political action group financed by the William Penn Foundation and other elitist trust-funders. It’s fundamental purpose is to lay the foundation for land grabs up and down the Delaware. It’s focus is fighting oil and gas and other development everywhere, as such development presents a distinct obstacle to its “strategic parkification” plans.
The Delaware Riverkeeper personified, of course, is Maya van Rossum, who is assisted by her Deputy Executive Director, Tracy Carluccio, the sister of the long-time chair of the organization and its effective representative on the New Jersey Highlands Council. The whole thing is very much an inside operation. Moreover, the organization is essentially now serving as the personal weapon of these two individuals to pursue their own NIMBY and radical de-growth agendas as they lend a hand to the efforts of the NRDC gang and the Haas family to make a wilderness of much of the region; the Delaware River merely being the excuse to attract funding for these sundry activities.
