Read the report about the dirty truth of LNG.
LNG is gas -- mostly fracked -- that is piped to the coast, supercooled, and compressed into a liquid. Due to over-extraction from fracking, the U.S. faces an oversupply of natural gas. In search of new markets, fossil fuel corporations are now looking overseas. Enter the LNG export terminal, otherwise known as the "fracked-gas terminal."
Companies are racing to build dozens of LNG export facilities across North America. Each of these facilities connect to a maze of pipelines that are fed from fracking sites. LNG terminals span hundreds of acres, and have ships three football fields long to carry the greenhouse-gas-intensive fuel to be burned in other countries.
There are 40 of these proposed and existing facilities in the United States, with 80% along the Gulf Coast.
