America’s energy renaissance is producing record volumes of natural gas, helping supply our country’s energy needs and strengthening our security while also advancing climate goals, including reducing carbon dioxide emissions and key pollutants. Thanks to cleaner-burning natural gas, you can make a strong “green” case for hydraulic fracturing, as some are doing.

Let’s follow up on a post earlier this week on the energy stakes in next week’s election with some recent analysis by Adam Sieminski, who heads the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Speaking at a Natural Gas Roundtable event, Sieminski said that constraints on hydraulic fracturing, reducing its use, could have significant price impacts.

With Election Day a week away Kyle Isakower, API’s vice president for regulatory and economic policy, and Erik Milito, API upstream group director, held a conference call with reporters to reiterate the embedded nature of energy in a variety of national issues and the importance of selecting leaders at all levels of government who will advance pro-development energy policies.

Using abundant natural gas offers states a path to meeting emissions reduction targets in a way that’s clean, reliable and affordable. That’s what ICF International modeling (on behalf of API) found. ICF analyzed each of the pathways under EPA’s proposed Clean Power Plan (CPP), as well as one in which market forces determine the fuel generation mix and new capacity additions – as opposed to government-mandated choices.

When a former Greenpeace executive director comes out in support of hydraulic fracturing, your first impulse probably is to check outside to see if pigs indeed have taken flight. The second and totally serious response is to understand and embrace the argument for fracking that's being made by one leading environmentalist. That environmentalist is Stephen Tindale, who led Greenpeace U.K. from 2000 to 2005.

Our ears perked up near the end of  when coal utility employee and instant celebrity Ken Bone asked Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump how their respective energy policies would meet the country’s energy needs while also protecting the environment and minimizing negative impacts on key job sectors. While political conversations generate their fair share of fact-checking, let’s do a little fact-setting.

The market approach works. What’s more, the energy development underlying that approach is recording lower methane emissions. New data released by EPA shows that methane emissions from oil and natural gas production fell in 2015, marking the fourth straight year of declines and documenting industry efforts to reduce them.

Interesting remarks from President Obama during the “South By South Lawn” event at the White House this week – with the president basically saying that the abundance and affordability of domestic natural gas is key to America’s energy present and future, even as he gave a nod to natural gas’ ongoing role in reducing U.S. carbon emissions.

Questions and answers about energy and energy policy aren’t just for the presidential discussion. They figure into Americans’ votes at all levels all over the country. Jack Gerard, API president and CEO, talked about the stakes for U.S. energy in this campaign season and beyond during a conference call with reporters. You can read his prepared remarks below.
