The Beyond Natural Gas Campaign aims to move the U.S. beyond natural gas use as soon as possible, ensuring that gas production is prevented in sensitive areas, on public lands, and in places where communities have decided it is contrary to their interests. Where production occurs, it must be regulated to minimize environmental damage and replaced as quickly as possible with cleaner alternative renewables and energy efficiency.
Housed at The New World Foundation, the Fracking Fund is an extension of the Foundation's emphasis on grassroots organizing and its history of advancing environmental justice.
