Dirty Distraction: The Energy and Natural Resources Act of 2017 (S.1460)
Oil Change International
The Energy and Natural Resources Act of 2017 (S.1460) would pave the way for fossil fuel expansion, locking in decades of dirty energy and undermining the necessary clean energy transition.
The best available science shows an urgent need move off fossil fuels to avoid severe disruptions to our communities, our economy, and the planet. Burning the oil, gas, and coal reserves in already operating wells and mines would take us beyond globally agreed climate limits. Promoting new fossil fuels in the face of our climate crisis represents the latest form of climate denial. We simply cannot afford new infrastructure that expands fossil fuels.
