The C3 Take
  • Russia is the world’s largest emitter of methane, due in large part to its dirty natural gas.
  • The EU’s reliance on Russian natural gas has hurt the environment and compromised national security by funding Vladimir Putin’s military operations along the Ukrainian border.
  • The EU should reduce its reliance on Russian natural gas by stopping the Nord Stream pipeline, importing American LNG, and adopting an all of the above energy approach.

“Russian gas is a geopolitical and climate disaster that helps sustain Putin’s malign regime. But the EU and U.S. and their allies can together take actions to limit the adverse impacts of Russian gas in the near-term while setting in place longer-term options for cleaner, more secure energy sources.”
