Call on Thurs., Dec. 23 from 6 to 8 PM and connect DE voters to Sen. Coons to ask that he will do everything possible to pass the Freedom to Vote Act including fixing the filibuster. Register at

26] – The fossil fuel industry has been getting away with transporting explosive and flammable liquefied natural gas by rail since the Trump Administration. These "bomb trains" put millions of people in harm's way and threaten our climate. President Biden's team recently proposed a rule to suspend transport of some LNG by rail -- but it's not a repudiation of the Trump rule and it won’t end this dangerous process. Can you to join Beyond Extreme Energy and the Build Back Fossil Free team to submit a comment before December 23rd to tell the Biden administration to ban ALL LNG transport by rail?
