LMOGA On Joe Biden’s Climate Plan

07 14, 2020 by LMOGA

Louisiana’s energy industry is committed to real solutions to climate change that build on American energy leadership and protect the good-paying jobs our industry supports throughout the state. The narrative that citizens and policymakers must choose between energy and the environment is fundamentally flawed. We need bipartisan policy solutions to reduce the risks of climate change that protect the environment while encouraging economic growth.

As a result of our industry’s longstanding commitment to the environment and billions of dollars’ worth of investments in infrastructure and technology, total emissions have fallen dramatically while production has significantly increased. In addition, CO2 emissions from energy use across the entire economy are at their lowest levels in nearly 25 years. We can have both a strong oil and natural gas industry and a clean environment if we work together.
