Self-description: San Juan Citizens Alliance was founded in 1986 as a voice for environmental, social, and economic justice in the San Juan Basin of southwest Colorado and northwest New Mexico.

Actual: Aggressive campaigning to destroy oil and gas development, hosted the original Oil and Gas Accountability Project as "Citizens Oil and Gas Support Center."

In late 2006, an anonymous person sent a warning memo to an oil and gas association, spelling out the details of a planned 3-year campaign to destroy the oil and gas industry in the Western United States, 2007-2009. The predictions for 2007 and 2008 have so far all proven correct. The "NoDOG MEMO" became a cause celebre in mid 2007 when it was spread to many analysts and petroleum industry people. Read The NoDOG Memo here. The Oil and Gas Accountability Project has claimed the memo is a fraud written by an oil company lobbyist, which begs the question of how an industry lobbyist would have such accurate detail on green group events months before they happened.

In late 2008, the anti-oil and gas campaign had gone full force, with the congressional support of key Democrats and likely support of President Barack Obama.
