Who we are:
Oil Change International is a research, communication, and advocacy organization focused on exposing the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitating the coming transition towards clean energy.
The final three chapters focus on the petrochemical build-out and plastics pollution, regulatory failure of watchdogs, and stories of families on the frontlines of the Permian Basin.
"Any credible analysis of alternatives and alignment with the Paris Agreement would prevent new fossil fuel projects from being financed," said Tucker.
Response defends original analysis, confirms enormous impact of the MVP project, and highlights the many false assumptions that have caused FERC to ignore gas pipeline GHGs.
"We can't adequately address the climate crisis if we're exporting billions of barrels of oil and gas to be burnt overseas. Confronting Big Oil and Gas’s deadly expansion plans is critical, and that's what Rep. Schakowsky and Rep. Barragán are doing with this bill."
The latest installment reveals that while Permian oil production grew 135% from 2015 to 2020, U.S. oil consumption was stagnant. The spread of pipelines, export terminals, tank farms and petrochemical facilities across the Gulf Coast intensified environmental injustice in the region, and was driven by oil, gas and petrochemical exports, not rising U.S. demand.
