Despite what the fossil fuel industry would have you believe – LNG (liquefied natural gas) and fracking are two of the fastest growing threats to our climate.

80% of gas extracted in BC is done through fracking. When industry liquefies this gas for export, it creates ‘LNG’ or liquefied fracked gas. So more LNG = more fracking, , creating an ecological disaster for communities in northeastern BC, on Treaty 8 territory, by covering the land with poisonous fracking waste and abandoned wells. Every year, fracking in British Columbia produces around 390,000 swimming pools worth of contaminated waste water.

LNG consists mainly of methane, a climate super pollutant, that when leaked during the production process is 86 times worse than carbon dioxide for warming our planet.
It’s clear that fracking and LNG have no place in B.C.’s energy future. And in the meantime, the government needs to act now to limit the negative impacts of the existing infrastructure.

By ending fracking and LNG, we can make sure that B.C. meets its carbon emission targets and we can support directly impacted communities from the devastation of fracking.
