It is clearer than ever that the climate crisis requires a rapid and managed phase-out of fossil fuel production. Reducing the wasteful practice of emitting methane into the atmosphere does not give the gas industry a pass. They need to clean up and wind down. And they need to start now.
The American Petroleum Institute (API) falsely claims that oil and gas will be leading energy sources in 2040, even in a Paris-aligned scenario. We show how API gets it wrong.
This victory comes as an enormous relief to people all along the more than 600 miles of pipeline route through West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina.
Four days in the Permian Basin is enough. It’s overwhelming in every way. It’s overwhelming the carrying capacity of the land. It’s overwhelming the community. And as Permian oil, gas, and toxic gas liquids flood global markets, it’s overwhelming our climate.
On a tour of the Permian Basin in New Mexico, the devastation and pollution is hard to miss. But with the help of a special camera, you can see just how bad it really is.
The third and final installment in a series of blogs on the IEA’s Special Report on gas and energy transitions. This blog discusses the IEA’s analysis of methane leakage and its faith in carbon capture and storage.
The second in a series of blogs on the IEA’s 2019 report on the role of gas in energy transitions. This part explores the climate risks inherent in the report’s main policy prescription.
The IEA latest report on gas all but makes the case against gas as a “bridge fuel”. But still finds a way to push for more of the controversial fuel.
Gas is dirty, expensive, and unnecessary – so why is the fossil fuel industry calling it a ‘bridge fuel’? Our new report unpacks and debunks the enduring myth that gas can form a ‘bridge’ to a safe climate.
The ACP is facing a triple threat of challenges that combine to present serious obstacles for the project to reach completion, which are are likely to further delay construction and raise the project’s price tag even higher. It would be prudent for investors to question whether pursuing the project further is a wise use of capital.
