I ran away and joined the FERC-us

#fercus Tweets WOW. When Environmental Action members signed on to support another week of action at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), I knew it would be a powerful, important week of action. What I wasn’t prepared for was how fun, creative and downright beautiful it would all be! On behalf of the hundreds of people who showed up, made art, called […]

Five protesters arrested Interfaith FERC protest

Almost a hundred people — many taking action for the first time —  blocked the entrances to FERC, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, on First St. NE in Washington, DC, early this morning. Five were arrested when they refused to leave the side entrance to the building. FERC approves nearly every permit that comes before it for interstate gas pipelines, compressor stations, gas […]

Bears are calling on Rick Scott

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) is only weeks away from authorizing a bear hunt. And our best chance to stunt the hunt and save the bears is to convince Gov. Rick Scot that it’s a bad idea for Florida’s tourism industry to allow the senseless and cruel killing of these shy forest dwellers. But we need your help getting Gov. Scott’s attention. Can you to […]

Even for FERC, this is UnFracking believable

This is low, even for the secretive and “rogue agency” known as the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC): Late yesterday evening when they thought nobody would notice, they quietly rescheduled their May meeting, and specifically said they were trying to avoid our protest action for the same day. FERC claims that we’re a safety risk, and that they need help from […]

Imagine no more Pipelines

Remember that time we blocked the expansion of dirty tar sands oil (so far) by uniting a big coalition of cowboys, Indians and environmental activists to block the Keystone XL oil pipeline? Well there’s another massive extreme energy expansion going on that you haven’t heard as much about: The Fracked Gas Circus. There’s a massive fracked gas drilling boom going on […]

Senate Passes Budget Without Addressing Climate Change…Sort of

Early this week the Senate approved the same basic budget plan that passed the House last week. As we reported, this budget failed to include an amendment introduced by Senator Michael Bennett (D-CO)  to consider national security and economic risks associated with human-induced climate change. This amendment previously passed in the Senate and should have instructed the House to include climate risks in their budget.  But the […]

Stop the Ferc-us, not one more permit

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” With climate change, we are at a moment when humanity cannot remain silent. We must hold accountable those who are causing the climate crisis. But a network of largely invisible and unaccountable federal agencies continue to permit, and profit from, […]
