|Resource title||Greenhouse Gases from a Growing Petrochemical Industry: Fracking and Low Gas Prices Spark Projects in 2015 With Emissions Equivalent to 19 Coal Power Plants|
|Author(s)||Eric Schaeffer, Tom Pelton, and Courtney Bernhardt|
|Publication/ source||Environmental Integrity Project|
|Summary text/ abstract||Although natural gas is often touted as a clean, “green” fuel because it produces less carbon dioxide than coal, low natural gas and oil prices – driven by the hydraulic fracturing boom – continue to spark extraordinary growth in the petrochemical industry and create waves of projects with a heavy greenhouse gas footprint. The emissions from these new or expanded chemical plants, fertilizer factories, liquid natural gas export facilities, and refineries that rely on cheap fossil fuels must be taken into account when calculating the climate impact of fracking. Many of the new industrial projects being built because of the fracking boom are in Louisiana, which may see its greenhouse gas emissions grow by a third because of 20 projects proposed or approved in 2015. Other major projects are in Texas, West Virginia, Oklahoma, and other states.|
