Methane is a far more powerful greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, a major contributor to the formation of smog, and a threat to the health of national parks and their visitors. Yet, billions of cubic feet of methane are leaked, intentionally released into the atmosphere, or simply burned off by oil and gas facilities on public lands, costing the American taxpayer $330 million in lost revenues every year! Learn more.The Senate is preparing to vote on whether to eliminate requirements to control methane waste from oil and gas facilities on public lands. If the measure passes the Senate and becomes law, massive amounts of methane will go to waste, speeding climate change, harming national park air quality and costing American taxpayers millions of dollars per year.
Join us and tell your senators to vote NO on S.J. Res 11!
Protect National Parks: Vote NO on Methane Pollution and Waste
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to ask you to vote NO on S.J. Res 11. These rules prevent the leakage and intentional waste of massive amounts of methane from oil and gas facilities each year. Methane is a far more powerful greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, driving climate change and contributing to smog and other local air quality problems in our national parks and beyond.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
