Energy industry

More often than not, it seems like Hollywood and the media paint the energy industry as environmental villains. But the truth is far different.

America is now the world’s leading producer of natural gas, and as natural gas production has grown, emissions of six of the most widespread pollutants, including carbon monoxide and lead, have been significantly cut.

In fact, with more electricity being produced by natural gas, carbon emissions are at a 20-year low. And we have reliable and affordable energy to power our homes and vehicles. That’s something Hollywood and environmental activists should consider the next time they flip a light switch.
