The gas industry has spent billions of dollars over decades selling the lie that their product is part of a clean energy future. We know the truth: So-called “natural” gas is the cause of climate change, not the solution – its total greenhouse gas pollution is worse than coal.
GAS = METHANE
Methane is a super-polluting greenhouse gas – more than 80 times as potent as carbon dioxide. Methane levels in the atmosphere are at record levels, and the gas industry is a leading source.
GAS LEAKS CONSTANTLY
Before it reaches your home, the gas system releases millions of tons of methane into the atmosphere. Irresponsible drillers deliberately vent it into the air at fracking wells. Companies have failed to maintain millions of miles of decrepit pipelines that cross the country. And gas leaks from furnaces and stoves in our homes and buildings, even when they’re turned off.
