Hmm, with all this power and Six Flags becoming really good partners with Premier Rides, now would be the perfect time to bring back Batman and Robin: The Chiller.

New Jersey has trees! I think that really should be the headline here.

Here is what is confusing me: they are "going green" by cutting down all of the green stuff.

Environmentalists aren't happy.

Quote:In addition, a spokesman for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection says the agency doesn't support the project...

Six Flags has pledged to replant 25,000 trees over seven years, but Jeff Tittel, the [Sierra] club's director, says it will take 30 to 40 years before they grow into a mature forest.

Tittel says the solar farm site, off Reed Road, is home to nesting bald eagles and other endangered species. It also provides a critical buffer between the safari park and two important headwater streams for Barnegat Bay, he said.
