To Local, National and International Leaders: We - parents, grandparents and families worldwide - demand actions that are strong enough to protect the children we love from catastrophic climate change. We want actions now to stabilize global temperatures, and a world powered by 100% clean, renewable energy.
How and why we must move beyond extreme energy and all fossil fuels - and leap immediately to renewables. Learn more about the Federal Regulatory Review Agency (FERC), a powerful, yet little known federal agency. FERC is charged with approving gas infrastructure projects such as pipelines, compressor stations and Liquified Natural Gas Plants. In fact, they have over a 90% project approval record! Communities around the country are now questioning what due process exists through FERC and bringing to light many of the problems that they are encountering as a result of these FERC approvals.

"Full Stop" on Fracking
Educate yourself about the 21st Century "Clean (use this word lightly) Energy Gold Rush," better known as "fracked natural gas," and find out that this is in fact anything but Clean, Natural or a Gold mine. Fracking is a dangerous, loosely regulated method of natural gas extraction that involves pumping a toxic sludge made up of hundreds of chemicals, many of which are "proprietary" and not disclosed, thousands of feet underground to break up rock that is trapping natural gas. This gas is then released and these dangerous chemicals come back to the surface for disposal. This process contaminates our drinking water, our land and the air that we breath.
