|Tell EPA to protect our communities and special places from oil and gas drilling.|
Good news! EPA is considering how to regulate the oil and gas industry.
From beginning to end, fracking only fuels climate disaster. As EPA decides how to regulate this out-of-control industry, let’s remind them we have one chance to get it right and protect our communities and public lands from dirty and dangerous fracking.
Right now, EPA is using outdated information and drastically underestimates how much methane escapes during the drilling process. Pound for pound, methane’s impact on global warming is 86 times greater than carbon dioxide. 1 Will you tell EPA to go back and use the most up-to-date information as they consider how to rein in the oil and gas industry?
The natural gas industry has their eye on a profitable prize — exporting liquefied natural gas to other countries. We already know how fracking pollutes our air and water, how close these drilling rigs are to the places we love, and have seen the extreme weather events fueled by climate-changing gases like methane.
Thanks for all you do to protect the environment,
Director, Dirty Fuels Campaign
