America's Natural Gas Alliance, which for years has been plugging its product as climate-friendly, finally got tired of greenwashing and jumped into bed with the notoriously filthy oil industry, which has never bothered to greenwash its product.

Bound together by their common love for fracking—and about a hundred other things—ANGA and the American Petroleum Institute, the respective lobbying groups for the gas and oil industry, will officially merge on January 1. 

The anti-fracking movement was never fooled by ANGA's greenwashing claims (despite their ubiquitous and problematic advertising campaign) and has always seen that the oil and gas industries are brothers from the same mother.
