New Orleans march

Report back from New Orleans action to stop CP2 and LNG too!

We went down to New Orleans to help plan and execute an action on LNG exports at the America’s Energy Summit (AES). The AES is like a who’s-who meeting of fossil fuel corporations and their enablers in finance and government and our actions helped it shut down early, and under-attended!

Take it to the streets to end climate killing fossil fuel exports!

Feb 1 – That’s a wrap – for now! Just a quick final post on this thread to report back: Yesterday we wrapped up the last of our solidarity actions with Appalachians Against Pipelines; and Today frontline leaders from the Gulf joined leading members of Congress in celebrating the Biden administration’s pause on LNG exports. …

Stop CP2 and all new LNG too!

Nov 29 update – We’re delivering comments and petitions to the US Department of Energy tomorrow. Meanwhile, yet another new report has come out showing that the Biden administration is canceling out its own climate progress by approving dozens of new oil and gas projects, especially LNG exports. This latest report from the Center for …

FERC vs the World over LNG

Tell FERC to stop approving new fracked gas infrastructure

Last month, the Federal Energy Regulator Commission (FERC) approved the GTN Xpress fracked gas pipeline expansion over the clear opposition of practically every elected official from Washington and Oregon, where the pipeline is slated to be built. That has kicked off a massive wave of opposition in Congress, which could be really good for long …

EPA Power Plant rules comments are due Aug 8

Tell the EPA to clean up their power plant plan

​Aug 7 update – President Biden’s EPA has proposed new rules to limit global warming pollution from power plants, and if done right, they could eliminate up to 90% of global warming pollution from the electric sector! But, as usual, the Biden Administration is paying more heed to corporate profits than they are to cutting …

Louisiana deserves better than this EPA False solution to climate change

The EPA is selling out Louisiana for false climate solutions

President Biden promised to cut global warming pollution in half by 2030, and to “net zero” by 2050. His EPA Administrator, Michael Regan, promised to prioritize environmental justice, and to protect overburdened communities like those in Louisiana’s cancer alley. Today, the EPA is breaking both promises – abandoning the people of Louisiana and Gulf south …

Permitting reform done wight meme

Permitting reform done right: America never knew how to build. But it could.

For more than a year now, we’ve been hearing the same lie about so-called permitting reform. The lie goes like this: America used to know how to build things. But then we invented a lot of environmental rules, like NEPA the National Environmental Policy Act, and environmentalists and especially communities of color got really good …

Tell FERC Environmental Justice is more than a box to check.

Juneteenth: Thinking about justice, race, and the frontlines

Happy Juneteenth – now officially a federally recognized holiday after (like the end of legal slavery it commemorates) too damn long. I’ve been thinking a lot about Environmental Justice — and especially our friends and relatives on the frontlines in the Gulf south — as it related to the on-going debate about whether and how …

Stop Manchin's FERC!

Tune in today to the fight to stop Manchin’s deal, and Manchin’s FERC

May 19 update – just a quick note at the end of the week to say: We did it! We did ALL of it! And it’s working! If you didn’t get the chance to tune in, we had a busy morning at FERC with rallies, a non-violent direct action that blocked the driveway entrance to …

Tell FERC Environmental Justice is more than a box to check.

Tell FERC environmental justice isn’t a box to check

For years we’ve told you how the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) rubber stamps virtually every fossil fuel project proposed to them. There’s a new FERC Environmental Justice docket open right now, which builds upon their roundtable discussion last March. They’ve also been ordered by President Biden, under a new Executive Order issued for Earth …
