At a time when we need to pivot away from fossil fuels, over 700 new facilities have been built, proposed, or are under development to capitalize off of an oversupply of cheap fracked gas. This shocking buildout is simultaneously fueling the construction of dangerous pipelines that connect shale fields to facilities.
This report is the first survey of the extent to which the oil and gas industry, the petrochemical industry, and the electric power industry are building out fracked gas infrastructure to raise natural gas prices by exporting LNG, manufacturing more plastics, and building gas-fired power plants. These industries are benefiting from cheap fracked gas, throwing an economic lifeline to the fracking industry that will increase air pollution, greenhouse gases, and plastic waste.
Join us for a discussion of this report and the our ongoing work to protect communities from fossil fuel expansion.
