In order to stand a chance of surviving climate change, we need to keep 80 percent of known fossil fuel reserves in the ground. Friends of the Earth stands side by side with communities on the front lines of resisting fossil fuel projects – from extraction, to transportation, to combustion.
In the Pacific Northwest, we work with the Stand Up to Oil and Power Past Coal campaign to put a stop to the oil and coal export boom that threatens our climate and puts our oceans at risk. We support indigenous peoples in resisting fossil fuel projects, such as the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, which endanger the health of their lands and waters. And together with our international network, we support communities around the world in the fight for clean air, healthy ecosystems and a safe climate.
Friends of the Earth Action and other groups are calling for Congress to pass significant cuts to fossil fuel subsidies in a rally today.
Friends of the Earth is committed to fighting against the Trump Administration’s dangerous, misguided policies on coal and nuclear power.
Stopping Gateway Pacific was a landmark victory for tribal nations and significantly contributed toward saving the Salish Sea.
A decade later Keystone XL has not been built, and Friends of the Earth remains committed to resisting this dirty pipeline.
