Don't Let Congress Put Oil And Gas Above Your Interests
2016 was the hottest year on record—and rising methane emissions are responsible for about a quarter of that increased warming. And in America, oil and gas companies are responsible for more methane pollution than any other industry. Together, we worked to put in place first-ever limits of the dangerous climate pollution that the oil & gas industry is leaking, venting, and flaring on our public and tribal lands. Now, all of that is at risk.
The House has already voted to roll back these standards and block the Bureau of Land Management from issuing similar protections into law in the future without additional congressional action. That will mean more pollution and wasted taxpayer resources. Now, the fight moves on to the Senate.
Any day now the Senate will vote on a rule that would permanently block common sense safeguards on pollution and waste from the oil and gas industry.
TAKE ACTION and tell Senator John McCain: Don't waste our taxpayer resources to protect the interests of the oil and gas industry.
