The purpose of CoalSwarm is to create shared information for the worldwide citizens’ movement to address the impacts of coal and move to cleaner sources of energy. The Global Coal Plant Tracker has information on 12,000 existing and proposed coal plants worldwide. The CoalWire newsletter is a global weekly news digest. The CoalSwarm portal on SourceWatch contains over 9,000 wiki articles providing a constantly expanding reference. FrackSwarm similarly provides a reference on oil and gas, including hundreds of major pipelines and  LNG (liquified natural gas) terminals.
