Frontline Communities and Environmental Advocates Share High and Long Term Costs of Liquified Natural Gas

TEXAS – On Thursday, May 9, Progress Texas will take an in-depth look at Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) operations in Texas, including the Biden Administration’s new export facility pause, the major health risks, environmental damages, and Big Oil and Gas’ real costs of prioritizing profits over people and the climate crisis.

We’re bringing together frontline communities and policy experts from across Texas to explain and share what Texans can do to support climate justice in 2024 as we move our state towards a greener, cleaner future.
