This is not what #ActOnClimate means.Stop pretending that fracking under any regulatory framework is consistent with IPCC findings. It’s not. This is the wrong ask.
Let’s be clear:

• From drilling to flaring to venting to condensing to compressing to pipeline, fracking is inherently leaky. Methane leaks are built into the engineering.

• Even if ALL the leaks were fixed, the CO2 emissions alone + ever-increasing # of wells =climate fail
• Fracking wells leak methane long after they are decommissioned. Plugging doesn’t stop the emissions bc methane seeps into the atmosphere from around the outside of the well casing as cement shrinks and crumbles with age. There is no #CutMethane fix for this problem.
