Description: In the face of a storm of new infrastructure permit requests, local fossil fuel and climate activists are employing local land use rules and other municipal action to limit fossil fuel expansion and export projects. By changing the underlying rules of what kinds of developments are allowed, communities like Whatcom County, Washington, and Portland, Oregon, are starting to change the game in the fight to protect the climate. For years, climate activists have been focused on preventing one dirty fossil fuel project proposal after another. By changing the underlying rules of what kinds of proposals will be considered in the first place, these communities can effectively stopall future dirty energy expansion and export projects.  With no support, funding, or leadership on the climate coming from the federal government, these kinds of local strategies are critical to the success of our movement. Join activists working on this approach to learn what makes communities good candidates for this approach, and how to build support with elected leaders, the business community, and the public.
