Take Action Now!

This Week’s Top 3 Actions:

Action #1- Tell the EPA and BLM to preserve rules preventing climate destroying methane leaks:

Script: New studies show methane leaks from gas production and delivery are much worse than expected.  According to The Economist, in 2013 the EPA found climate damaging methane leaks were 30% higher than expected.   Given climate change induced wildfire costs, droughts & floods leading to crop damage and higher food prices and higher FEMA costs to clean up increased hurricane damage, as a taxpayer I strongly object to removing protections that minimize methane leaks.  Since methane leaks into our only environment, it is unconscionable to suggest that national level protections “assumed too much authority over air quality”.  I ask that you retain the existing Waste Prevention Rule.

Action #2 – Ask Senators to co-sponsor Senator Warren’s Climate Risk Disclosure Act, S.3481:
