The Urgent Problem
From the financial system to the political system—the game is RIGGED in favor of the fossil fuel industry. Fossil fuel corporations are working hard to rebrand themselves as clean and green through things like “certified gas” or “blue hydrogen,” but we’re not taking the bait.
That’s why ACE is focused on stopping new fossil fuel infrastructure from being built across the Ohio River Valley, the Gulf South, and the Permian Basin where the vast majority of buildout is occurring and where we have been base-building since 2008 when we were founded.
The fossil fuel industry spends an estimated $900 million annually to sow disinformation, slow the energy transition, and perpetuate the fossil fuel status quo. They have decades of experience doing this successfully and have trillions of dollars of assets locked up in the fossil fuel economy. They will stop at nothing to derail and slow our pathway to net zero.
Fossil fuel corporations currently outspend the clean energy sector 13 to 1 in political contributions. The fossil lobby has a stranglehold on US politics and is successfully manipulating our political system to their benefit—and they need to be stopped.
