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.

The Ninth Circuit made the right call in upholding the prohibition against construction activity by TransCanada. We do not need a foreign corporation disrupting Montana communities for a dangerous project whose permit has been deemed unlawful by federal courts.
The Canadian National Energy Board announced its recommendation today that the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project move forward today, despite widespread opposition.
TransCanada’s willingness to push the rules in a rush to build this dirty pipeline is deeply concerning and speaks directly to the corporation's effort to bypass environmental safeguards.
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.
Climate change is a crisis that needs new thinking. For almost 30 years, the promise of cap-and-trade, carbon markets and faith in capitalism have generated a never-ending debate that has careened toward political inaction.
In 2018, Chloe Maxmin became the first Democrat to win Maine House District 88. Chloe is young Mainer with a background in climate justice and community organizing.
The real answer to the climate change crisis lies in changing the way we manage, extract, use and distribute Earth’s natural resources.
