Responding to a Misleading Narrative on Texas Oil Exports

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Texans For Natural Gas | October 11, 2018 Fact check: Sensational, misleading media story that claims Permian Basin energy development is “threatening the planet” is chock full of inaccuracies, features debunked activist claims, and was co-authored by an organization funded by “Keep It In the Ground” supporters.
