President Biden and Speaker Johnson are locked in a global fight over LNG exports and climate change

Enough with the nonsense, let’s ban LNG exports now.

We told you a week or two ago about fossil fueled fascist House Speaker Mike Johnson’s plan to repeal President Biden’s pause on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exports in exchange for aiding Ukraine. MAGA Mike is still trying to head off an insurrection from inside his own fossil fascist caucus. But there is a simpler …

fossil fascist speaker Mike Johnson has a dirty, dumb idea for LNG

Fossil Fueled Fascists in the House have a dirty, dumb idea for LNG

House Speaker Mike Johnson has been facing pressure to call a vote on urgently-needed aid to Ukraine. But extremists in his own caucus have already filed a “motion to vacate” his speakership if he brings the Senate’s bipartisan Ukraine aid package up for a vote. So this weekend, Speaker Johnson went on Fox news to …

Tell the Senate to vote no on these nominees to UnFrack FERC

We’ve seen enough. Tell the Senate to vote NO to UnFrack FERC

We took a ton of actions last week to UnFrack FERC – the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. If you missed one of our (many) updates last week, click here to get caught up. But as you probably heard, President Biden has nominated three new Commissioners to FERC. They are Judy Chang, David Rosner, and Lindsay See. …

LNG marches on, join the FERC Valve Turners

LNG exports remain unbound. Time to shut down the permitting pipeline

Friday Feb 16 update – Sorry to report, the House has passed HR 7176 224-200 yesterday with 9 Democrats siding with every Republican to pass a bill that would reverse President Biden’s pause on LNG exports by giving sole authority over fossil fuel exports to FERC. We warned you last week that this vote was …

Sen Schumer and Manchin

Tell Manchin: Keep your dirty hands off President Biden’s LNG pause

Quick Feb 9 update – Video report below but the quick synopsis is this: Manchin and his friends held their hearing Thursday morning, but we made sure it did not go quietly. About two dozen protestors snuck into the hearing and interrupted Manchin and his hand-picked fossil fuel witnesses (but not the DOE official who …

Pope Francis Joe Biden fire earth meme

Pope Francis is right, it’s time to stop burning fossil fuels.

Pope Francis has written another good and timely encyclical calling the catholic faithful and all people of good moral conscience to action on climate change. Since it’s a Sunday we thought we’d share it – you can read it here and I endorse this summary of it by David Wallace Wells. And while it’s always …

Tell President Biden to declare a climate emergency

Leading in the wrong direction: Tell President President Biden to declare climate an emergency & stop all new fossil fuels

This week, President Biden’s Department of Energy announced that US exports of crude oil set a new record high — averaging 3.99 million barrels per day (b/d). It’s the most oil we’ve exported, ever, since the crude oil export ban was lifted in 2015. Coincidentally (or not), ExxonMobil announced it is acquiring a major rival …

Biden Declare a climate emergency

Practically nothing – Biden still hasn’t declared a climate emergency

In case you missed it – President Biden gave an interview to the Weather Channel, released yesterday, in which he first seemed to forget whether he’d declared a climate emergency, and then when asked to clarify if he has issued an emergency declaration, Biden said: “Practically speaking, yes.” This is a lie. Biden has not …
