YOU ARE HERE is an interactive online map, created by Sane Energy Project, in collaboration with the Fractracker Alliance and dozens of upstate allies. The map allows users to see the big picture of the shale gas network statewide, then zoom in on their own region, learn the current status of a project, and connect with the local group that is fighting it. The map shows hundreds of existing and proposed pipelines, compressor stations, and waste storage facilities. It offers a comprehensive, bird’s eye view that the fossil fuel industry does not provide the public.
The new stand-alone website we created for the map allows the map to belong to the movement rather than one organization, because we believe that the movement cannot exist without the numerous distributed people-powered community groups and organizations that make it happen.
Since the launch of the map during the People’s Climate March, in 2014, Sane Energy Project and allies have hosted dozens of forums statewide that use the map to demonstrate relevant local projects and spur citizen action. Email us if you would like to discuss hosting a forum.
Keep up with news about hearings, comment deadlines and other important notices on the YOU ARE HERE Facebook page.
