Our planet continues to be saturated with toxic byproducts of the fossil fuel industry and corporate agriculture. And now these two industrial sectors are combining forces to appeal to a growing public demand for meaningful climate action. As the movements to decarbonize and electrify amp up these corporations are trying to assuage the public with technological Band-Aid fixes like “renewable” natural gas.

On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with Tyler Lobdell with Food and Water Watch about what renewable natural gas really is and why ramping up its production exacerbates climate chaos.
