FERC vs the World over LNG

Not too late and none too early to stop CP2 and LNG too

December 19 update for FERC meeting – Good morning activists! Today is the day of FERC’s last Commissioners’ meeting of 2023 and we’ve got some extra actions you can take to help us deliver the message to stop CP2 and LNG too!

Tell Biden and DOE no new 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 …

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 …

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 …

Stop Manchin’s FERC – a report-back and a new report

Quick message in solidarity and action with our fierce allies at Beyond Extreme Energy – I joined BXE today at an action targeting the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) monthly meeting – the first since Democratic Chair Richard Glick was ousted by Joe Manchin late last year. I didn’t think much of Glick, as I’ve …

Gear up and take action with new shirts, hoodies and more in our store!

Gear up in our new store to celebrate the solstice and our work!

Today is the winter solstice – meaning that from now until next summer, the days will only get warmer, longer, and sunnier. It’s fitting that the solstice comes just after we got word that Manchin’s dirty deal has been defeated a fourth (and we hope, final) time this year! Senate negotiators announced early Tuesday that …
