Reject Dirty Energy Bill

Smoke Stack Pollution

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to bring a new dirty energy bill to the Senate floor when Congress gets back from its July 4 vacation.

This bill would:

  • speed up approval of exports of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) abroad, increasing fracking here at home
  • give FERC  more authority, but little accountability, over decisions about pipelines for natural gas
  • authorize hundreds of millions of dollars for research into recovering methane hydrates, a dangerous new source of methane trapped under the ocean floor
  • have no mention of solar or wind in the “renewables” section
