UK newspaper Interview with the Guardian To environmental experts about the decision United State Regarding the energy matrix in Europe.
Motion includes decision European Union From Increase import of liquefied natural gas From United StateTrying to rely less on Russian hydrocarbons. This, for those in the know, could lead to a “disaster” for the climate crisis.
You know, days ago, the European Union and United States of America They came to an agreement Through which the North American country will provide in 2022 an additional 15,000 million cubic meters of gas to Europe.
“This comes to represent about a tenth of the gas that the community bloc currently obtains from Russia, which provides 40% of the total hydrocarbon consumed by the region. But US gas imports will increase even more, with the European Union intending to receive up to 50,000 million cubic meters annually from United States of America and other producing countries,” constribte RT.
However, in the English media, environmental groups reacted to the agreement with concern. According to them, the decision could pave the way for a prolonged period of increased gas use, as the world must take steps to phase out fossil fuels in order to avoid “catastrophic climate change“.
We must make a rapid transition to affordable clean energy, without doubling down on fossil fuels. Reducing dependence on fossil fuels is the only way to stop being exposed to the whims of greedy industries and geography. political”.
According to the Guardian, United States of America It has become a major exporter of energy, with “hydraulic fracturing” technology and thus the circulation of its huge gas reserves.
After freezing, the LNG is loaded onto ships and exported to the world. And so the United States is already selling almost the maximum production capacity of its gas.
Sheehan continues: “Allowing the expansion of new facilities and expanded gas export capabilities will cement dependence on volatile and precarious fossil fuels for decades to come, bringing disaster to our climate and the communities along the Gulf Coast of Mexico, which are already overburdened with overcapacity.”
