There are always those who will want to profit from war or the threat of war, as unscrupulous as it may seem. And for the American oil and gas industry there is no exception.
The American Petroleum Industry’s greenhouse gas reporting template obscures the U.S. oil & gas industry’s massive responsibility for the climate crisis.
Despite record floods in Europe and massive wildfires in the Pacific NorthWest, Big Oil remains in denial over climate change.
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.
The API claims gas is the main reason US power sector emissions are down. Our latest analysis shows it’s not.
A detailed analysis by Oil Change International of the public statements and commitments by the American Petroleum Institute (API) around methane emissions and climate change has uncovered a decade of spurious data, deceptive messaging, and disingenuous public positioning by the big oil spin doctors.
The American Petroleum Institute is desperate. They want to clutch onto the past while the world changes around them, and the public really isn’t buying it.
Today we’re releasing a new briefing, entitled “Lift the Ban, Cook the Climate: Why Eliminating the Crude Export Ban Fails the Climate Test,” detailing why Congress and the President should stand up to current efforts by the oil industry to eliminate the ban on crude oil exports.
Today Bloomberg News revealed that the American Petroleum Institute (API) has developed a strategy to challenge America’s crude export regulations using international trade law. Deregulating U.S. crude oil exports would make fracking and the tar sands even more profitable than it already is and enable the industry to go into ever more marginal and extreme reserves to produce more of these extreme oils.
