Methane pollution standards protect our environment and keep us safe – tell the EPA to keep them in place.
Oil and gas methane pollution standards are commonsense safeguards that help keep our air clean and our families healthier. Now, the Trump Administration EPA is recklessly rolling back these protections. This puts lives at risk – exposure to harmful air pollution from the oil and gas industry can increase risk of asthma attacks and cancer. Methane is also a significant driver of climate change and is responsible for roughly a quarter of the warming we’re experiencing.
The EPA needs to keep methane pollution standards, not gut them – our future is on the line. Together, we can stop the Trump Administration from putting the interests of the oil and gas industry over the needs of our families. Submit your comment today.
