by Tim Donaghy

June 2, 2023

Discover the environmental risks and climate implications of the United States' surging Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) exports, threatening communities and undermining our climate goals.

In recent years, the United States has become the world’s largest oil and gas driller, and an increasing amount of fossil gas production is being directly exported to other countries in the form of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). This surge of exports threatens the health of U.S. communities and risks putting our climate goals out of reach. On this page, we collect research and resources that tell the story of LNG exports  – and what we can do to stop them.
