With the EPA having nearly completed its war on coal, the next enemy of environmentalists will be natural gas.
The opening guns in the campaign against natural gas were fired by the Sierra Club. The battle plan is called “beyond natural gas.”
Here is how the Sierra Club portrays the issue:
|“Fossil fuels have no part in America’s energy future – coal, oil and natural gas are literally poisoning us. The emergence of natural gas as a significant part of our energy mix is particularly frightening because it dangerously postpones investment in clean energy at a time when we should be doubling down on wind, solar and energy efficiency.”—Robin Mann, Sierra Club President|
It’s troubling, at best, to see the Sierra Club adopt an approach that hurts the United States, its economy, and its citizens.
The Sierra Club’s web site contains gross inaccuracies (call them lies) about fracking and natural gas.
The sentence from their web site, “[Fracking] is known to contaminate drinking water, pollute the air, and cause earthquakes” is 100% wrong on one count, and misleading on the other two. Their manifesto, also on their web site, contains a wealth of inaccurate information.
