Testimony in House Natural Resources Hearing on Gulf of Mexico Oil and Gas Leasing

On January 20, 2022 the Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources hosted a remote oversight hearing titled, “What More Gulf of Mexico Oil and Gas Leasing Means for Achieving U.S. Climate Targets.” Witnesses included Policy Integrity's Max Sarinsky, who explained why reduced fossil fuel extraction on federal lands and waters would not be fully replaced by extraction abroad (as industry claims). Sarinsky's full testimony is available here and the recording of the hearing is here.
