Rubber Stamp Rebellion call button

When it comes to the rebellion against fossil fuels and fracked gas infrastructure, in particular, you need to do more than tune in — you need to show up, speak out and get radical to make change. Fortunately that’s exactly what we’ve been doing all week as part of the #RubberStampRebellion in Washington, D.C. But the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), has not […]
2015 in Review

Remember that time we stopped the pipeline, saved a species, shut down FERC or called out climate denial live on national TV? I do. But there’s no way I could fit all the amazing stuff you, me and everyone at Environmental Action did this year into one message. So check out our 2015 highlight reel – stuffed full of more […]

Yesterday was the day to Un-frack the #COP21 climate talks in Paris. Dozens of Environmental Action members chipped in to support a delegation from Beyond Extreme Energy — our pipeline fighting, export terminal busting, front-line community supporting buddies who you’ve met before on the sidewalks in front of FERC.

#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.

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 […]

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 […]

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.
