Regarding “Pipelines rupture” (Editorial, May 23):
The editorial cited damage to California’s shoreline as a result of the recent pipeline oil spill there and how we don’t want to see the same in New Jersey. Yet every day, barges move oil and petroleum products up and down the Hudson River, putting some of our most sensitive environmental areas — the river and the Jersey shore — at risk. A spill downriver would likely wash up along the Jersey coast. As you said, we must find the best possible method to move oil; that method is still a modern pipeline.
