Our goal at Sane Energy Project is two-fold: to fight fossil fuel and nuclear infrastructure, and encourage renewable infrastructure.
We oppose the development, transport and export of shale gas and tar sands oil, mountaintop removal for coal, and all forms of extreme extraction.
We support a rapid switch to renewable energy and the goal of zero fossil fuel dependence by 2030, as outlined by the 2009 Stanford University study.
Sane Energy Project is a grassroots group, formed in January of 2011 to oppose The Spectra Pipeline, the first of several high-pressure, large diameter shale gas pipelines slated to enter New York City. Today we have enlarged that mission to include shale gas infrastructure statewide and regionally.
Here’s a summary of our current programs.
We are allied with many activist groups in New York City and statewide, battling fracking and shale gas development. We were one of the main forces behind the formation of the NYC Grassroots Alliance and NYGRASS. We’re a small but effective group, with a core leadership of 4 people, and a membership list of about 5,000. Our volunteers work tirelessly to get the word out–leafletting, gathering petition signatures, meeting with community groups and elected officials. Please join us.
