The AFL-CIO and the BlueGreen Alliance are releasing a report today called Interconnected – The Economic and Climate Change Benefits of Accelerating Repair and Replacement of America’s Natural Gas Distribution Pipelines. In it, we examine how moving up repairs to our natural gas distribution lines can have a tremendous impact in terms of jobs created and sustained, millions of metric tons of greenhouse gases avoided, cost savings from consumers not paying for lost gas, and growth in our nation’s Gross Domestic Product.
