Tell EPA to Reduce Methane and other Harmful Pollutants from Oil & Natural Gas Operations!
President Biden and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) just took a critical step towards cutting methane and other harmful pollutants from the oil and gas industry – but there is more work to be done to ensure that we are confronting the climate crisis head-on, and protecting the health and safety of communities across the country.
Cutting methane pollution from the oil and gas industry is the quickest, most cost effective way to slow the rate of climate change and protect public health. The EPA’s updated draft rule improves upon many of the standards in the original draft rule released by EPA last year, including by requiring regular monitoring at all well sites, but it does not go far enough. We need the Biden administration to use all of its authority to quickly enact strong solutions for pollution to meet the President’s climate, public health, and justice commitments.
That’s why we need you to let the EPA know why cutting methane is important to you – submit a public comment here!
