This report focuses on fossil gas development in the G20 and debunking the myth of fossil gas as a clean transition fuel.
The report finds that major private banks funneled $115 billion into extreme fossil fuels in 2017, an increase of 11% from 2016. The single biggest driver of the increase in financing came from the tar sands sector, where financing grew by 111% from 2016 to 2017.

The proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector pipeline would be a substantial source of climate pollution for decades to come. This briefing provides an estimate of the project lifecycle emissions and provides the climate rational for rejecting the proposed project.
A new report released by Oil Change International details, for the first time, the full accounting of greenhouse gas emissions that would result from the proposed Jordan Cove LNG Export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas Pipeline project in Oregon.
This was an easy decision for FERC. Secretary Perry’s proposal was nothing more than a massive bailout for the coal and nuclear industries, so it’s no surprise it was resoundingly rejected by even the industry-friendly commission.
The Atlantic Coast Pipeline, like the Mountain Valley Pipeline, is a boondoggle that imperils our climate and communities. It must not be built. The Water Board has given itself an important opportunity to complete its work the right way by finalizing a complete rejection.
This analysis provides five clear reasons why fossil gas is not a “bridge fuel.” It shows that even with zero methane leakage, gas is not a climate change solution.
Last Friday, FERC continued it’s rubber-stamping ways. Fortunately for pipeline fighters, fights against these two fracked gas pipelines is far from over. Here’s a selection of community voices responding to FERC’s terrible pipeline approvals of Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast’s certificates.
The Virginia DEQ is holding five hearings across the Commonwealth to receive public input on proposed pipeline projects – three hearings on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and two hearings on the Mountain Valley Pipeline.
