Live online event: How LNG exports threaten our clean energy future

Source: https://forum.canarymedia.com/canary-media1/Live-event-Bill-McKibben-on-how-LNG-exports-threaten-our-clean-energy-future

Wed Nov 15 at 4:00 PM EST | Eastern Time

Join Canary Media for a live online conversation with journalist and climate activist Bill McKibben about how the U.S. is ramping up exports of liquefied natural gas, or LNG. The Biden administration has made big strides in promoting clean energy, but it's also been enabling a massive expansion of dirty energy in the form of new LNG export terminals. What does this mean for the global climate, the clean energy transition, and the communities that live near these polluting facilities?

McKibben will dig into these issues with Canary Media contributing reporter Nicole Pollack, and the audience will have the chance to ask questions.
