Despite all the progress we’ve made over the last few years in ending fossil fuel finance, Senate Republicans want to take us back to an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy that could lead straight to climate disaster. Senator Lisa Murkowski’s new proposed legislation, the “Strategic Energy for America Act of 2019,” would be a massive gift to the fossil fuel industry.
The bill would boost gas infrastructure, promote fossil fuels in international forums, and pave the way for a huge uptick in gas exports to ship pollution overseas, just at the moment we know we must stop the expansion of oil, gas, and coal production and begin implementing a just and managed phase-out of extraction in the U.S. and around the world.
Sen. Murkowski has opened a comment period for the bill, and if we flood it with messages opposing this dangerous fossil fuel handout, we can kill it once and for all.
Add your voice to make it clear that we won’t turn back the clock to a time of using public money to boost gas infrastructure and dangerous exports.
