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.
A new study published last week confirms what we already knew about oil and gas in the Permian Basin. It’s an unmitigated disaster.
A day after meeting big oil bosses at the White House last Friday, Donald Trump was at his usual chest-thumbing best defending an industry he loves: “I am a big believer in our great energy business, and we’re going to take care of our energy business,” he said at a press conference.
For years, the fossil fuel industry has argued that gas is clean. But we know the truth: Gas is not a bridge fuel, and is not compatible with a climate-safe future.
Recent analysis shows that oil majors — including Oil & Gas Climate Initiative members — are set to spend hundreds of billions of dollars more on exploration and extraction of oil and gas that the world cannot afford to burn, eclipsing symbolic ‘low-carbon’ efforts.
Donald Trump and Scott Pruitt, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, will awake this morning to the realization that they cannot simply roll-back President Obama’s environmental regulations, like you would the lid on an old sardine tin.
Forecast gas production growth will bust the climate, even with no methane leakage.
One of the main arguments that the pro-frackers put forward about adopting the controversial technology is that it is a clean, secure fuel that can be used to bridge the gap between dirtier fossil fuels and cleaner renewable energy.
Experts are warning that due to the methane leakages rates from fracking, it could be worse for the climate than burning coal
