Alaskans for Energy Freedom
Alaska posses nearly ½ of all U.S. coal resources and 1/8 of the world’s coal lies within the soil of The Last Frontier. Rising global demand for energy, particularly in Asian markets, is driving a new wave of proposals to access and export that coal to be burned in coal-fired power plants. The production, transport and use of Alaska’s coal would result in trillions of tons of global warming emissions and have a devastating impact on Alaska’s economy and natural resources. Alaskans for Energy Freedom (AEF) is a coalition of fishing and hunting organizations, tribes, businesses, property owners, consumer, and conservation groups working to prevent the impact of Alaska's coal on global climate change and on Alaska’s environment.
AEF works to support the efforts of our campaign members to stop coal mining projects across Alaska through grassroots organizing, media outreach, technical analysis and a robust legal campaign.
