Beyond Extreme Energy is producing a series of educational videos about FERC and the petrochemical industry. We’ll post links to videos here as they become available.
Video 1: Are Oil and Gas Pipelines for the Public Good?
Through the voices of those directly harmed, this video introduces eminent domain abuses.
Video 2: Is Natural Gas a Clean Alternative?
The notion that fracked gas is a clean transition fuel is widespread. This video debunks the lie.
Video 3: Greed Pays: Pipelines and Profits
We’ve all heard the lie that pipelines create jobs and economic development. This video is about how greed and profit are baked into the system of pipeline construction and fracked gas infrastructure.
Video 4: What is FERC?
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is the most dangerous federal agency many Americans have never heard of. We care about FERC because it is in charge of approving—or not—interstate gas pipelines and infrastructure projects. FERC has turned down only 2 gas pipeline projects out of over 500 submitted over the past 30 years.
In a world where the impacts of fossil-fuel induced climate change are so clear, and so devastating, it’s absolutely necessary that FERC be replaced with an agency dedicated to an active and just transition off fossil fuels.
