Beyond Extreme Energy: Spreading Awareness on Climate Change

The following commentary was provided by Beyond Extreme Energy (BXE) member Drew Hudson.

"For years we've battled to get people to understand the connection between the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), fracking, and extreme fossil fuels that threaten our health, communities, and climate. Many times in the course of that fight, we've described FERC as 'the most dangerous federal agency you've never heard of'.

"Thanks to the unfortunate build out of dozens of new fracked gas and oil pipelines, combined with Trump and team's outrageous plan to subsidize coal and nuclear plants to the tune of over $1 billion with our electricity bills,* a lot more people are hearing about FERC. But still millions of our neighbors have no idea that we're living through the biggest build out of fossil fuel infrastructure in US history. And they may not even know that they're living next door to an activist, frontline group, or protest encampment.

"So BXE has come up with a plan to produce a series of smart, informative, powerful videos about extreme energy, FERC, and our work together."
