Tell the EPA we need stronger protections from hazardous air pollution now

Action: Stop Pollution

March 8, 2016   Action Alert ID# 347

 

We need your help today to close outrageous air pollution loopholes for fracking-fueled oil and gas operations. Benzene—a toxic petrochemical that actually smells “sweet”—has been linked to cancer, anemia, brain damage and birth defects, and is just one of many hazardous air pollutants produced by the oil and gas industry that needs to be reined in.

In 2012 the Environmental Protection Agency began the job of trying to reduce toxic air pollution from the oil and gas industry. Now the agency is finally trying to finish what it started by asking the public to weigh in as it considers strengthening protections for the air we breathe.

We have just days to demand strong protections from several hazardous air pollutants. Take action now before the deadline for public comment expires on March 11.

Across the country, people live just a few hundred feet from oil and gas infrastructure that spews dangerous pollution like benzene freely into the air. In cities like Los Angeles and Houston, companies can even emit these carcinogenic, brain-damaging chemicals right next door to homes, schools and playgrounds.

The EPA has the duty and the tools to close the loopholes that allow the oil and gas industry to blanket our communities in a fog of pollution, but the agency needs to hear from you now. Take action to end pollution loopholes for oil and gas operations, including fracking. This is the perfect opportunity to give communities relief from pollution that can cause cancer, respiratory and neurological problems, and birth defects.
