Take Action: Get involved and help us protect our oceans!  Join now

Representative John Adler

New Jersey-3rd

“Drilling for oil a few miles off of New Jersey is a mid-20th century response to a 21st century problem. It will do nothing to reduce the cost of gasoline or our nation’s carbon emissions, while polluting our beaches and restricting fishing in large stretches of our ocean.”


Leadership: Rep. Adler has a reputation for being “hardworking, incisive, and respected by both parties,” during his six terms as state Senator. His success is driven by his determination to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to pursue their individual American dreams, get a good education, and reap the rewards of hard work. He knows that through perseverance and hard work we can build a better tomorrow for all Americans. Adler served on the State Environment committee and has consistently fought against off shore drilling and spoken out against an offshore liquid natural gas facility noting the potential for “environmental nightmare.”

Rep. Adler cosponsored H.R. 3650 (Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Amendments Act of 2009), H.R. 5214 (Big Oil Bailout Prevention Act of 2010) and supported H.R. 2454 (American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009).
