Thank EPA for proposing new safeguards and urge them to follow through with strong rules limiting fracking air pollution

Dear Kevin,

Fracking-related air pollution puts our families and the environment at risk.

New rules released today by the EPA would limit this toxic air pollution.

The proposed Methane Pollution Standard is the first limits on methane emissions from new and modified facilities including well pads, compressor stations, storage facilities and other infrastructure.

This is a critical step in reining in the out-of-control oil and gas industry.

Limiting methane pollution is good for our climate. Methane is 86 times worse for climate change than carbon dioxide.

Reducing methane emissions will also help protect families living near new fracking sites and related infrastructure by lowering other harmful emissions including known carcinogens.

TAKE ACTION: Thank EPA for proposing this new rule. Urge EPA to follow through with a strong rule to protect families and the environment from fracking air pollution!

Thank you,


Lauren Pagel, Earthworks Policy Director
