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 a calendar primarily for actions aimed at stopping the building of any new fossil fuel infrastructure. Submissions for this listing should be sent to email@example.com and should include location, date(s), description (short) and contact info.
