We are at a crossroads in this decade that will determine the future of our planet. Investing in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is nothing short of a disaster for the climate. Methane, the main component of LNG, is 80 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas, and is already causing over 30% of global warming. The process of fracking for methane gas is also incredibly destructive, leading to pollution, earthquakes and health problems for nearby residents.
Canada has pledged to reduce methane emissions. In order to effectively meet our commitments, we must stop the expansion of LNG as a marine fuel and instead invest in zero-emission technologies and fuels.
