Over the past few months, several articles have been published in the Charleston Gazette-Mail about the oil and natural gas industry that appear to be one-sided with an obvious anti-development bias. The articles, funded by ProPublica, never bother to highlight the many benefits the industry provides our state. While ProPublica’s publicly stated mission “to expose abuses of power and betrayals of the public trust ... using the moral force of investigative journalism to spur reform through the sustained spotlighting of wrongdoing” is a noble idea, it should also equip readers with all the facts on a given issue. It should not cherry-pick its facts and find quotes to fill in around a predetermined outcome.

WASHINGTON, October 17, 2018 – API issued the following statement regarding EPA’s release of data from Greenhouse Gases Reporting Program report today, which continues to show a downward trend in GHG emissions even as U.S. oil and natural gas production grows dramatically.
“The United States leads the world both in natural gas and oil production and in cutting GHG emissions—clean natural gas produced through advanced technologies like hydraulic fracturing is playing a significant role in driving carbon dioxide emissions to 25-year lows,” said API Senior Director of Regulatory and Scientific Affairs Howard Feldman. “Americans have the cleanest air in decades due in part to the increased use of natural gas to generate electricity, demonstrating that environmental protection and economic growth are not mutually exclusive.
