LNG/fracked gas not good transition fuel
Researchers recently discovered that methane emissions from the LNG/fracking sector are at least 2.5 times higher than the government estimates, meaning the LNG/fracking industry is much dirtier than we’ve been told.
New research shows that LNG/fracking is the largest source of climate pollution in B.C.
The natural gas/fracked gas industry is intentionally releasing methane into the air 24 hours a day. Most of these emissions are not being measured, monitored or reported.
The federal government recently announced a delay of three years to take action to reduce methane pollution. We can’t afford this delay. Cutting methane pollution is one of the cheapest and most effective ways to address climate change.
Methane is 84 times more potent as a climate pollutant than carbon dioxide and has a relatively short lifespan, so reducing methane emissions will have a quick and major impact on protecting our climate.
It’s time to invest in the clean energy economy, clearly LNG/fracked gas is not a reasonable transition fuel.
It’s time to clean up this fracking mess.
Humans need nature more than nature needs humans. As we kill off the wild things on this earth we will follow.
