Carbon mega bomb’: climate experts urge Biden to block gas export hub

Joe Biden’s administration is under mounting pressure to block construction of what would be one of the world’s largest gas export hubs, and which would be perched near the rapidly eroding Louisiana shoreline, due to concerns over its impact on the climate and communities living amid an unprecedented expansion of new gas infrastructure along the Gulf of Mexico. The $10bn project, known as Calcasieu Pass 2 (or CP2), is being planned for Cameron parish, on Louisiana’s coast. It would involve bringing gas extracted via fracking through a new pipeline to a terminal where it would be condensed into liquid, chilled to -260F (-162C) and sent on ships for export to other markets, including in Europe https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/oct/23/louisiana-gas-export-hub-biden-climate-crisis

        As the world faces the devastating effects of climate change, it is imperative that world leaders take immediate action to reduce carbon emissions. The proposed gas export hub, also known as the "carbon mega bomb," would only exacerbate the problem. It is encouraging to see climate experts urging President Biden to block this project and prioritize a transition to renewable energy sources. We must prioritize the health of our planet and future generations over short-term economic gains.
