Natural Gas: A Bridge To Climate Breakdown

The U.S. power sector plans to build more than 60 gigawatts of natural gas plants and pipelines locking in emissions that would blow through the Paris Agreement’s targets, while risking tens of billions in investment and a trillion dollars in consumer costs by 2030.

This report published with shareholder advocacy group As You Sow outlines these evolving risks for shareholders, lays out investor strategies to accelerate the clean energy transition, and shows how adding renewables along with electrification cut utility investment risks from over-reliance on natural gas while providing new growth opportunities that support decarbonization.
