#oilandgas flimflam men are lying! Journalists should not repeat the lies!

They want the public to believe that natural gas is a solution for #climatechange.

IT IS THE PROBLEM.

U.S. GHG emissions are rising not decreasing as flimflammers claim. 1/4

Natural gas is #methane or CH4 and it's a super pollutant that is over 86 X more potent at warming the planet than CO2. But, it doesn't stay in the atmosphere for very long and that's where the HOPE for STOPPING #climatechange is. 2/4
Because #methane is short-lived, if we STOP #fracking and #KeepItInTheGround our planet will have an immediate response and the rapid warming will slow giving us time to solve CO2 which stays in the atmosphere for a very long time. 3/4
We don't need #oilandgas for American #energy. We now have the technology to meet 95% of our energy needs without #fracking up the planet and our neighborhoods. Ask --> @mzjacobson

What we need is the political will to transition to #RenewableEnergy
#ExtinctionRebellion 4/4
@mzjacobson If #methane weren't invisible, there would be no #fracking boom, and we would be deep into #renewableenergy right now.
