State Dept. Emails: How Clinton Pushed Fracking


#1


#2

Hillary has proposed since 2010 natural gas as an interim fuel to get us to renewable energy. She claimed regularly in her international trips that it was less toxic than other fossil fuels, which is a patent lie. Natural gas is methane, a more effective heat accumulator than CO2. Fracking in the US led to a loss of all progress made in CO2 over the last 10 years because fracking wells can not be adequately capped and there is leakage at every fracking site in this country. Presumably the same is true throughout the world. MIT scientists brought the problem to the attention of the EPA, which promised to recalculate how we are doing in stopping our damage to the climate. It makes absolutely no sense to invest in more infrastructure to transport fracked gas, when as a fuel it is toxic to the environment. It is a fossil fuel, and new infrastructure will destroy land use patterns for minimal usage. It is a waste of money and time. Block all new pipelines and require the US to stop using fossil fuels if you want this world to be safe for future generations.
