This is the first factsheet in a forthcoming series that details why fossil gas is dangerous for our planet and our communities in Africa, and how gas acts as a barrier to the energy transition we need for a safe, secure and healthy future.
Gas infrastructure locks in decades of new carbon emissions and slows the transition to clean energy. This fact sheet provides insights into the latest research on achieving fossil-free electricity.
“Sacrificing millions of acres in the Gulf of Mexico for oil and gas extraction is a gross denial of reality by Joe Biden in the face of climate catastrophe,” said Collin Rees.
