EPA head Andrew Wheeler has proposed a plan to gut an existing rule that limits methane pollution from new and modified natural gas facilities.
Moms see this proposal for what it is: a thinly veiled attempt to shield oil and gas facilities from national standards for years to come, while ignoring EPA's core mission to protect public health and the environment.
Don't let the Trump EPA turn its back on our children. Tell Administrator Wheeler: protect our kids from dangerous methane pollution.
SUBJECT: Parents urge you not to abandon existing methane safeguards
Dear Administrator Wheeler,
As a parent, I strongly oppose the EPA's recent proposal to eliminate existing safeguards on methane pollution from new and modified natural gas facilities.
This proposal puts the health and future of millions of children across the country in danger. Methane makes up 25% of global climate pollution, contributing to a climate crisis that has thrown our children's future into chaos.
Climate change is a major threat to our health and safety. It's time for bold solutions, not steps backwards.
Unchecked oil and gas operations near where our kids live, learn, and play also put them at risk of exposure to cancer-causing chemicals such as benzene and toluene.
All children deserve a safe, healthy future. Please do not abandon the existing methane safeguards that are keeping children across the country safe.
