Liquefied natural gas (LNG)
Liquified Natural Gas, or LNG, is a carbon-intensive fossil fuel. Companies and governments are falsely suggesting that LNG is a bridge fuel towards a low-carbon future, but that could not be further from the truth. Producing LNG requires extracting natural gas — usually using fracking — cooling the gas to extreme temperatures, shipping the LNG across the ocean, and then burning it for electricity production. Every step of this process is very energy intensive, and LNG companies greenwash the process by promising to use unproven carbon capture and storage technology to bring emissions to net-zero.
LNG has no place in our just transition to a sustainable and equitable future. We want to see public spending directed towards projects and social infrastructure that will move us towards that brighter future immediately, not later.
