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.

A crucial matter of governance to be addressed and rejected is the ill-conceived, oligarch friendly TPP and Fast Track. This is a trade deal that removes sovereignty from Americans and their elected so-called representatives of the people (be as they may), and gives control to foreign unelected bureaucrats and technocrats who have no reason to consider the well-being of America, but rather are intent on commercial profit.

"The president\'s foes aren\'t arguing against globalization or trade," vanden Heuvel added. "They are arguing that the rules that govern our trade and investment strategies have been rigged by global companies and banks to benefit themselves, not American workers."

Vote No on TPP and Fast Track. The electorate will be wise to remember, during the next election cycle, who voted on this critical matter that can and will change the life of Americans in America. The so-called free market has become a feeding trough for the privileged through legislation and trade deals. It is time to remember the human and environmental rights of Americans.'); return false;">...
