The Sierra Club is working to stop the expansion of fracked gas into the power sector, buildings, and exports, and to ultimately phase out this polluting and dangerous fossil fuel. Fracked gas is a danger to all communities, risking public health, environmental devastation and climate disruption (more resources on the dangers). Building new gas infrastructure is a particular danger to Black, Brown and Indigenous communities, who bear a disproportionate burden from pipeline construction and the other consequences of fossil gas. The solution is a just, sustainable transition to 100% clean, renewable energy, which already affordably does the work of gas-fired power plants without the risks of dangerous, dirty gas.
Building out new fracked gas infrastructure would lock the country into a fossil fuel commitment for decades to come, with devastating consequences for our communities and the climate. We can’t let that happen, which is why we’ve launched a comprehensive effort to stop this buildout and end our reliance on fracked gas.
The Sierra Club maintains one of the most comprehensive databases available of US gas plants, pipelines, and export terminals. The data is updated frequently and powers this map, which you can use to explore all proposed and existing gas plants and pipelines as well as those terminated since 2017 and currently planned and existing liquified natural gas (LNG) terminals. Just click on the buttons in the upper right-hand corner of the map to switch on or off the type(s) of facility you want to view.
