Tell them to vote NO
On Trump's fossil-fuel industry nominees to the federal agency that regulates the industry! 

 Find your Senators' Contact Information here:

  • CALL NOW. The Confirmation Vote could be THIS WEEK (July 10-14, 2017).
  • The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is a rubber-stamp operation. That's why we have accidents on pipeline after pipeline. And that's why runaway investments in unnecessary fracking and oil pipelines that fuel climate change are approved. This has to stop. 
  • Nominees Ron Powelson and Neil Chatterjee's strong ties to the fossil fuel industry should disqualify them from serving on the agency that is supposed to regulate that industry.
  • Powelson describes anti-pipeline advocates as members of a "jihad."

No to the NEXUS Pipeline: Call Your Senators

ACTION ALERT:  Contact Senators Stabenow and Peters



The proposed 250-mile NEXUS pipeline would carry up to 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas daily under high pressure from Kensington, Ohio to a gas storage facility in SE Michigan. It's dangerous and we don't need the gas--it is destined for Canada! Call or email Senators Peters and Stabenow Senator Gary Peters (D). Then contact 3+ senators on the Energy Committee that will conduct the Hearings on Trump's FERC nominees (Sen. Stabenow serves on this committee). Scroll down for talking points!
