Comment: Natural gas infrastructure is a tool for climate progress and economic recovery

As America’s energy infrastructure leaders, the North American natural gas pipeline industry is building for our energy future. From reducing our own emissions to enabling renewable energy growth, our industry moves one-third of the energy consumed in the U.S. through a safe and resilient energy delivery system while leading the way in addressing some of the world’s most difficult environmental challenges.

To address these challenges, natural gas will continue to serve as a catalyst to help our nation and the global community reach its climate goals. Over the past 15 years, the transition to generate more electricity with natural gas has eliminated more greenhouse gas emissions than any other fuel source. In order for this progress to continue, the natural gas industry must collaborate closely with policymakers, researchers, and other stakeholders to define a clear path forward.
