The American Petroleum Industry’s greenhouse gas reporting template obscures the U.S. oil & gas industry’s massive responsibility for the climate crisis.
A great joint investigation by Channel 4 news in the UK and InfluenceMap has found that oil industry lobbyists are using social media such as Facebook and Instagram to promote the continued use of gas and the myth that gas is a green fuel.
Five decades on from the first CCS project, the technology remains riddled with problems, unproven at scale, and not fit for purpose. It is beyond time to focus on the real solutions to the climate crisis and injustice that the fossil fuel industry has wrought. Neither CO2-rich gas or LNG qualify.
API is not to be trusted when it comes to climate and energy policy. They have stood in the way of climate action for decades, and continue to spout myths in order to protect the bottom lines of its Big Oil and Gas members.
