Just as the U.S. oil and gas industry is looking to exploit the Ukraine war to expand exploitation of shale gas, so too is the European shale gas industry.
The final three chapters focus on the petrochemical build-out and plastics pollution, regulatory failure of watchdogs, and stories of families on the frontlines of the Permian Basin.
In this six-part series, we explore the ongoing oil, gas, and petrochemical boom in the Permian Basin and Gulf Coast. It is a story of runaway toxic infrastructure, environmental injustice, and climate overshoot.

A new report released today by Oil Change International and partners finds that New Mexico’s projected oil and gas production is entirely out of sync with the action necessary to prevent catastrophic climate change. The report analyzes the full climate impact of New Mexico’s oil and gas extraction, and finds that the state’s goals of reducing emissions will be completely undermined by continued expansion of oil and gas.
