At Oil Change International we work to expose the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitate the ongoing transition to clean energy. Join us.
Joe Manchin’s “dirty deal” to greenlight the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) and gut crucial safeguards that give communities a say in the permitting of energy projects is back again. But this time, the Biden administration has weighed in to explicitly support the 300-mile proposed fracked gas pipeline that would cut through Appalachia.
Manchin and the Biden administration are promoting this project by claiming MVP will “help our allies” and is in the interest of “national security” and “energy security.” But claims that MVP would help Europe or benefit national security — in Europe, in the United States, or anywhere else — are
Shipbuilders face significant risk by overshooting liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipping capacity that is inconsistent with future energy scenarios, according to a new report released today by Climate Analytics and Solutions for Our Climate.
In response to the Supreme Court curtailing the Clean Water Act, Allie Rosenbluth, Oil Change International US Program Co-Manager said:
"We are deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court's decision to curtail the Clean Water Act, a cornerstone of environmental protection in the United States. This ruling undermines our collective efforts to safeguard our nation's water resources and places the health and well-being of communities at risk. It is a setback in the ongoing battle to ensure clean and accessible water for all.
“The systematic gutting of our environmental protections by corporate polluters and their allies serves only their interest and financial gain,
In response to Republican lawmakers attempting to attach dirty permitting deals to must-pass debt ceiling legislation, Allie Rosenbluth, Oil Change International US Program Co-Manager said:
“These dangerous and dirty permitting deals are a matter of life and death for millions of people across our country who are already overburdened by decades of fossil fuel pollution, the impacts of climate change, and compromised public health. The increased exposure to oil spills, gas leaks, air pollution, and water contamination would exacerbate existing environmental injustices and the climate crisis. We must draw a red line and say no to Republicans taking our economy hostage

REPORTS & BRIEFINGS
These briefings reveal that Total, Eni, and Equinor are on the cusp of approving a surge of new oil and gas development. If they proceed with all the projects in their anticipated pipeline for 2023, Eni could rank as the world’s third worst oil and gas expander this year and Equinor as the world’s eighth worst by the total volume of new reserves approved for extraction.
New Oil Change International research shows that Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries supported fossil fuel exports by an average of $41 billion from 2018 to 2020, almost five times more than clean energy exports ($8.5 billion). This directly contradicts internationally agreed climate goals, including the Paris Agreement objective to align financial flows with the low-carbon energy transition.
This new analysis shows that over 47 Gigatonnes of CO2 could be released by extracting and burning fossil fuels from within protected areas.
A new report by Oil Change International and Earthworks examines the rapid growth in “certified gas” and exposes on-the-ground failures to detect oil & gas pollution by one of the largest certifiers of methane gas.

The world is experiencing a climate breakdown. We're working to chart a new course off fossil fuels.
The Paris climate goals demand a rapid, just transition from fossil fuels to clean energy. We’re pushing governments to lead the way by adopting policies to end oil and gas production.
Governments are still spending billions subsidizing oil, gas, and coal. We need to #StopFundingFossils and start investing in the future.
The science says we need to keep fossil fuels in the ground to meet climate goals. We’re pushing back against industry spin saying otherwise.
In Africa, Oil Change is supporting movement partners in challenging key proposed fossil fuel projects.
In Asia, we’re fighting the buildout of gas infrastructure and working towards an end to all finance for fossil fuels.
In the U.S., we’re working at all levels to halt fossil fuel expansion and align government policies with science and justice.
