Tell the EPA: It's time to crack down on methane pollution
Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2021-0317
Methane gas is one of the biggest factors behind our warming climate -- fueling the climate change that's threatening endangered species across the planet and driving violent wildfires, worsening droughts and melting sea ice. Thanks to this climate change, we've seen storms flood cities from Louisiana to New York, and we've seen wildfires in the West darken the skies of cities across the eastern seaboard.
The time to fight climate change is now -- and the EPA's newly introduced rules regulating methane emissions from the oil and gas industry will help keep planet-warming methane gas out of our air. They'll represent an important step in lowering our country's greenhouse gas emissions -- and they will be essential in helping our planet avert the most catastrophic climate disaster.
For that reason, I urge you to pass the strongest possible regulations governing methane emissions in the oil and gas industry.
