Given EIA’s shoddy track record, today’s Annual Energy Outlook projecting climate doom leaves us feeling quite confident that we’ll continue to kick our fossil fuel addiction and tackle our climate crisis.
The Hazards of EIA Energy Forecasts
WARNING: Use of this outlook for decision-making may cause sea level rise, flooding, droughts, extreme weather, food shortages and ecosystem collapse. Accepting the conclusions of the latest energy outlook, released this month by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) means also accepting certain climate catastrophe. As we have noted before, the EIA has made a routine … Read More

The EIA needs to play its part for the climate
An enduring aspect of the EIA’s lack of attention to the urgency of the climate crisis is the lack of a projection of U.S. and/or global energy supply and demand that reflects the nation’s stated commitments to address climate change.
The Energy Information Administration should help, not hinder, policymaking on the energy transition – a critique of the International Energy Outlook 2016
Reaction: EIA’s latest outlook another recipe for climate chaos
The EIA’s Reference Case is a recipe for disaster, and indicates that we need a new set of ingredients to create the clean energy economy necessary to solve the climate crisis.
Upcoming EIA Energy Outlook: Not a Forecast
As energy wonks across the country gear up for the release of the Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) International Energy Outlook (IEO), we here at Oil Change International wanted to be sure everyone is on the same page as we read over the EIA’s analysis. Most importantly, when it comes to the words “outlook” or “forecast” … Read More
Oops they did it again
In our latest briefing, we unravel why U.S. government agencies are setting themselves up for climate failure when assessing the climate impact of fossil fuel decisions, and what they should do about it.
