Help stop waste and pollution on our public lands

Action: Stop Pollution

March 28, 2016   Action Alert ID# 355

 

Every year, while fracking our public lands, the oil and gas industry wastes hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of natural gas, harming our health and speeding up climate change.

Luckily, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has proposed updating its 30-year-old regulations governing methane and natural gas waste by adding commonsense measures to reduce waste and rein in air and climate pollution on public and tribal lands. The measures would restrict venting and flaring and require companies to find and fix leaks.

Speak up now: Tell the BLM you support the proposed rule, and urge the agency to close loopholes that may weaken it.

Between 2009 and 2014, the oil and gas industry intentionally wasted enough taxpayer-owned natural gas from public lands to supply 5 million homes. The gas that is spewed into the air is made up of methane—an extremely potent greenhouse gas—and other toxic air pollution that threatens public health and clouds our Western skies.

Earthjustice has worked for decades to clean up the oil and gas industry and hold it accountable to the highest standards. Because most Western oil and gas production occurs on public lands, the proposed rule would take a big bite out of methane waste nationwide. And the agency can do even more by expanding its proposal.

The BLM needs to hear from you. Tell the agency today that you support its efforts to reduce waste—and encourage it to improve the rule by eliminating current loopholes.
