The fossil fuel industry has tried for years to brand gas as a "clean" fuel source. But we know natural gas is just Big Oil's sharp-dressed cousin.
New England is on the verge of getting rid of coal and oil for good. But now another dirty fossil fuel – gas – is masquerading as a clean replacement energy source. What New Englanders need today are local, renewable energy sources, not another polluting fossil fuel.
CLF is working to prevent New England communities from footing the bill for unnecessary new pipelines and dirty power plants. These massive investments in gas would lock us into an unhealthy reliance on polluting fossil fuels for generations to come – long past the time when science says we need to quit dirty energy for good.
Tell your state elected officials: "Natural" gas is just another fossil fuel imported from outside New England, and they should not support any new gas infrastructure in the region. Let's build clean, local, renewable energy for New England instead.
