Climate Change Action -- Oppose Trump's Methane Pollution Rules Rollback

RE: EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-0483-0005

ATTN: Acting Administrator Wheeler

We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the administration's proposed rollback federal rules designed to reduce methane pollution and its warming effects on the atmosphere. In the short term, methane is more than 80 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than even carbon emissions. Please reinstate federal rules from the last administration that increased monitoring and recapture requirements to keep methane emissions from escaping into the open air, degrading air quality, and fueling climate change.
