MVP “boondoggle” would add 90 million metric tons of GHG emissions

March 08, 2021

Blue Virginia:

According to this new report by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA), things are not look great for the fracked-gas Mountain Valley Pipeline boondoggle’s prospects. So sad, right? ?  But seriously…let’s hope IEEFA is right, because this project is basically the exact *opposite* of what we should be doing right now, both on environmental and economic grounds, when it comes to energy. Among other problems, the Mountain Valley Pipeline “would be responsible for close to 90 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually, equivalent to 26 coal plants or 19 million vehicles on the road.” Which is absolutely bonkers, really, and should be enough reason alone to kill this absurd project.
