Tell the Environmental Protection Agency not to weaken methane regulation
I strongly urge you not to finalize planned rollbacks to the direct federal regulation of methane leaks from oil and gas facilities.
The regulation and reduction of methane emissions is crucial to protecting our environment and combating global warming. Although methane accounts for less than ten percent of greenhouse gas emissions, it is responsible for more than a quarter of our planet's warming. These proposed rollbacks are estimated to increase emissions by hundreds of thousands of tons annually -- exponentially increasing the amount of heat trapped in our atmosphere and accelerating global warming. It is clear that methane emissions need to be decreased, not deregulated.
