Tell FERC and Biden: Hell No to CP2 and LNG too!

For many months, we’ve been calling on President Biden and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to stop the biggest build out of fossil fuels in US history. All told, FERC has been considering, and mostly approving, the construction of more than 20 new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export facilities that could add the equivalent …

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).

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.
