API highlights economic impacts of a fracing ban in new video

2/20/2020

WASHINGTON - The American Petroleum Institute released a new video to coincide with Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate that addresses what it says supporters of a fracing ban won’t discuss – its cost to America.

API’s video features voices like Christiane Amanpour and former Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp, among others, who “lay bare the destructive impacts of eliminating millions of jobs that so many families depend on,” the organization said.

“Fracing has been one of the most important technological advancements in American history, and banning it would erase a generation of American progress. A fracking ban would leave working families behind, cost millions of jobs, and deliver a major win to countries like Russia. Presidential candidates who stand with American workers must stand against a ban on fracing,” API’s director of communications Ben Marter said.
