Tell your Representative: Support the “Methane Waste Prevention Act of 2019” May 29, 2019

This action alert is no longer active

Methane, a.k.a. fracked gas, is a terribly potent greenhouse gas. It leaks into the atmosphere wherever it is extracted, greatly accelerating climate change. Those leaks are routinely accompanied by toxic and carcinogenic gases.

That’s why the new “Methane Waste Prevention Act of 2019,” H.R. 2711, is so necessary. By reducing leaks of methane gas from oil and gas wells on federal land, it will protect both our health and our climate.

Under the Trump Administration, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) have sought to roll back existing controls on methane leakage, endangering our communities’ health in the process. These rollbacks of existing health and safety protections allow the oil and gas industry to waste a publicly owned resource while endangering our health and the future of the planet.

This bill is urgent and necessary. It is also cost-effective and simple to implement.

Please ask your member of Congress to cosponsor H.R. 2711 today to protect our health, our planet and our future.
