Extreme Energy Extraction Collaborative

The Extreme Energy Extraction Collaborative

Through Catskill Mountainkeeper's work to ban fracking in New York, we became aware not only of how much our fight parallels other fracking fights in the country, but also how similar it is to fights against all extreme methods of extracting, mining and processing fossil fuels. Our awareness led us to co-found the Extreme Energy Extraction Collaborative, an alliance of over 80  grassroots organizations that are each fighting the extreme energy methods that are specifically affecting their communities.

The Collaborative’s mission is to build a national movement to address climate change and promote a transition from the destructive fossil fuel economy to a new model based on conservation and efficient, clean, achievable, affordable and renewable energy alternatives.

Our members include national groups, other coalitions, grassroots activists and representatives from indigenous peoples and low-income and rural frontline communities who often disproportionately feel the negative impacts of extreme energy and climate change.  For the first time our members are banding together to fight against the fossil fuel industry’s misguided and massive public relations campaign that touts the supposed benefits of one fossil fuel over another – like replacing coal with gas. Together we are working to loosen the stranglehold that the fossil fuel industry has on our energy economy.
