Liquified natural gas, or LNG, is often touted as a "bridge fuel" to buy us time in the transition to a clean energy economy. But studies from NASA and Stanford have shown it's a bridge to nowhere.
The lifecycle carbon impacts of LNG are just as bad as coal -- and when methane is fracked, piped hundreds of miles, supercooled to a liquid and shipped overseas, it is not a "clean" and "efficient" product. In fact, any leaked methane is 86 times as potent a greenhouse gas as carbon dioxide.
That's why we must stop all LNG export facilities trying to make a buck shipping these climate-changing fossil fuels to Asian markets, including the latest plan in Oregon at Coos Bay.
