Support BXE’s FERC Vacancies Work

Right now, we have an unprecedented opportunity to delay all interstate fracked gas pipelines being proposed for the United States. As renewable energy grows stronger and communities rise up to oppose fossil fuels, any delay we can cause to fracked-gas infrastructure buildout is a major victory. We can’t take full advantage of  this opportunity without your support, however. As we build coalitions and partnerships, and prepare for action, please consider making a $50 donation to Beyond Extreme Energy today by clicking here.

What exactly is this unprecedented opportunity? A few weeks ago, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)  Chairman Norman Bay resigned from his post, leaving the agency with only two commissioners. Without a  quorum of three commissioners, the panel can’t issue permits for  fracked-gas infrastructure. The two remaining commissioners can do little until President Trump  appoints a replacement. That’s where we come in. A donation of $50 or more will go a long way toward ensuring that we’re able to effectively mobilize to delay Trump’s appointments to FERC. Click here to make a donation now.

Over the last few weeks, Beyond Extreme Energy and our allies have worked to build a coalition of more than 100 organizations that have pledged to oppose Trump’s nominations to FERC. Going forward, we will continue to build this coalition and collaborate with its members to fight Trump’s nominations using a variety of creative strategies and tactics. Please click here to make a much appreciated donation to help fuel our continuing work.

In addition to working with our allies to pressure senators to question and oppose Trump’s FERC nominations, we will help plan, coordinate, and execute actions across the country to both expose FERC as an arm of the fossil fuel industry, and to convince our senators to question and oppose Trump’s nominees. These actions could range from rallies and press conferences to speak-outs and nonviolent civil disobedience. They might take place at senators’ state offices, their DC offices, and even the Senate confirmation hearings for the nominees.  To make all of this happen, of course, we really do need your financial support. Anything you can give, however big or small, would help make this effort a success. Please click here if you are able to contribute.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Your support is much appreciated.

Sincerely,

The Beyond Extreme Energy Crew
