Beyond Extreme Energy

UPDATE: FERC is so afraid of our feedback that they've asked Federal Protective Services to reschedule their meeting "to better ensure the safety of its staff and the public." But our peaceful protest isn't a risk, FERC's climate-destroying policy is.

Sign here or donate to show FERC that climate change is a moment when as humanity we cannot remain silent. We must hold those accountable who are causing and furthering our climate crisis.

This is why we're going back to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) May 21-29 in Washington, D.C. with a coalition of frontline groups and activists called Beyond Extreme Energy.

Why FERC? Robert Kennedy, Jr. has called them “a rogue agency, a captive agency.” FERC is the federal agency which, among other duties, has to approve proposed interstate natural gas pipelines, compressor stations, export terminals and other gas infrastructure. And approve is what they do; they are a rubber stamp for the fracking industry.

At this time of crisis, we need a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that does what is right, not a weak body whose funding comes from fees paid by the gas industry and other fossil fuel companies they “regulate.” And that means all of us need to take action to stop disastrous fossil fuel expansion -– more fracking, more gas pipelines, export terminals and other extreme energy projects.  Together we will promote a pathway for FERC to transform into a leading institution that can support the shift from fossil fuels to wind, solar, and other renewables.

We must transform FERC and other government agencies from rubber stamp agencies that permit our doom, into drivers of the solutions we need to stop climate change. Stopping FERC in an important front in the struggle to end corporate control of our government.

Sign on here to support us.
