We've launched our new Energy Justice calendar.
Now we are working on improvements!
We want to do is facilitate sharing our calendar. We want to make it easy for you to import the information into your personal calendar or a website.
For instance, you can embed our list of upcoming events into your website by using this iframe code:
The calendar has a iCal feed which can be imported into Google Calendar, your personal calendar application, and an organization's website calendar.
We have added a list of important upcoming events to the calendar.
We want you to join the EJ Community Map user email list. We need your help in building this project!
Sometimes it feels that there is an overwhelming number of online tools for activists to use. Why should you take the time to learn and use the Energy Justice Communities Map?
You can use this feature to add information about a proposed, existing, or defeated facility.
Please let me know if there is you have any questions or suggested improvements to it.
Neighbors for Clean Air has very neat looking map of suspicious odors and factories. There is also a schools layer which I turned off. The school layer only includes schools in a small square area of the city. It also looks like the factory data is incomplete and does not cover an industrial section in the northern part of town.
This social movement map from FracTracker on anti-fracking ordinances is very inspiring:

It is amazing to look at Texas in Google Earth or another satellite mapping program. Parts of Texas are covered in oil and gas wells. Texas has over 100,000 wells.
This is what the map looks by Sonora, Texas.
The white specks are all wells.
I entered our Energy Justice Communites Maps as a submission to "Apps for the Environment".
