Beyond Extreme Energy is publishing a calendar of actions being planned, in the works or on-going. We publish it every one-two weeks. It is available at www.beyondextremeenergy.org, and it is also distributed via email and social media. It is a calendar primarily for actions aimed at stopping the building of any new fossil fuel infrastructure.
