Pressure is growing on US regulators to investigate and radically overhaul US Certified Gas after shocking revelations were published last week in a report by Oil Change International and Earthworks.
New Report: Certified Gas and Project Canary Threaten Global Climate Goals
Our new report shows that certified gas programs are likely highly unreliable and ineffective, resulting in increased threats to health and climate from the oil and gas industry.
Certified Disaster: How Project Canary & Gas Certification Are Misleading Gas Markets & Governments
A new report by Oil Change International and Earthworks examines the rapid growth in “certified gas” and exposes on-the-ground failures to detect oil & gas pollution by one of the largest certifiers of methane gas.
As Biden expands Gulf of Mexico drilling, new research finds it has significantly greater climatic impact than previously thought
A new scientific paper, published yesterday in the PNAS, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, has concluded that government inventories of methane and carbon dioxide significantly underestimate the amount of gases which are released in the Gulf of Mexico from oil and gas operations.
Cheniere’s new LNG greenwashing scheme exposes the deep flaws in industry’s methane strategy
Oil Change International and Greenpeace USA released a report today raising serious questions about both the methodology and the intent of Cheniere’s so called cargo emission tags or CETs.
Scientists warn that natural gas “cannot be a solution towards a zero-emission future.”
A new academic paper outlines why gas is not a so-called bridge fuel to a zero emission future. The scientists conclude that “a fossil fuel with a high climate impact, often hidden under a misleading narrative, which hinders decarbonization via infrastructure expansion, and so creates carbon lock-in effects and bears high economic risk, cannot be a solution towards a zero-emission future.”
API’s GHG Reporting Template Is a Model of Misdirection
The American Petroleum Industry’s greenhouse gas reporting template obscures the U.S. oil & gas industry’s massive responsibility for the climate crisis.
Big Oil & API spending millions on Facebook & Instagram to misleadingly spin “gas is green”
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.
Sorry, API, Gas Isn’t Why Emissions Are Down
The API claims gas is the main reason US power sector emissions are down. Our latest analysis shows it’s not.
Bad Data and Deception: The American Petroleum Institute Pivots on Methane
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.
