New York, NY – Today, the American Petroleum Institute (API) released their annual State of American Energy report, where the fossil fuel front-group doubled down on the industry’s climate deception playbook.

On this latest report, Emily Southard, 350.org spokesperson, said:

“The American Petroleum Institute weighing in on our country’s energy future is like an arsonist telling us how to put out a fire. API knew and lied for decades about the reality of the climate crisis, and is now doubling down on its playbook of delay and deception.

“While API flaunts the diversity of fossil fuel workers, the report blatantly fails to mention the disproportionate harm to Black, Indigenous, and communities of color by fossil fuels; the over 118,000 oil and gas workers laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic; and its funding of a white supremacist insurrection.

“Renewables are already eclipsing fossil fuels. It’s time to make polluters like API pay for their deliberate climate destruction, and leap toward a just recovery that puts our communities’ health and safety first.”

Just yesterday, the U.S. Energy Information Agency (EIA) reported that renewables will account for a majority of new U.S. electricity generating capacity in 2021, including wind power overtaking coal in Texas generating nearly a quarter of energy there.
