Now that coal has been brought to its knees, the Sierra Club’s moved on to its next victim: natural gas. Big Green has a strategy to destroy American oil and gas production with the same tactics.
Don’t take our word for it: Here is what Lena Moffitt, who runs the Sierra Club's Beyond Dirty Fuels campaign, says: "We have moved to a very clear and firm and vehement position of opposing gas. Our board recently passed a policy that we oppose any new gas-fired power plants. We also have a policy opposing fracking on our books."
That's an amazing admission, given that natural gas is a clean-burning fuel that is reducing greenhouse gas emissions and real pollutants, too. There have been no reported cases of water contamination from fracking technology, as even the Obama administration has admitted. But facts don't matter much in this debate.
Ms. Moffitt wasn't done unveiling the Sierra Club's master plan.
In the same interview with S&P Global Market Intelligence, she admitted: "We are doing everything we can to bring the same expertise that we brought to taking down the coal industry and coal-fired power in this country to taking on gas in the same way."
"I look forward to seeing the same success brought to taking down gas plants to ensure that we're actually moving to a 100% clean energy future," she continued. "That is the one Sierra Club policy that we are all working toward: getting us to 100% clean energy, which, of course, would include no new gas."
So the Sierra Club admits that their agenda is to destroy millions more energy jobs and American industries, and to make electricity production more expensive and less reliable. They are against LNG terminals for exporting oil and gas, pipelines for transporting it, fracking for drilling it, refineries for refining it. Only a few years ago, the Sierra Club and even Nancy Pelosi were singing the praises of natural gas for its environmental benefits. But once it became very cheap and abundant, Big Green changed its tune.
