Goal: Urge the EPA to adopt the proposed, strengthened pollution standards for new and existing gas wells and compressor stations.
Send a comment to the EPA The deadline for submitting a comment to the EPA regarding these strengthened pollution standards for new and existing gas wells and compressor stations is approaching. Here's a recap to catch you up to speed: It's no secret that fracking negatively impacts the environment and is actively contributing to the ongoing climate crisis. The gas industry needs to be held responsible for their reckless amount of VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions like carcinogenic benzene. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed new, strengthened pollution standards for new and existing gas wells and compressor stations. The proposed standards require air pollution inspections at all oil and gas extraction facilities and include significant updates to required pollution control technologies. Using our easy-to-fill-out form, you can submit a comment to the EPA showing your support for these proposed regulations. Please feel free to customize our pre-written message with your own sentiments. The deadline to submit a comment is February 13. More info from the EPA on submitting comments
Insist that the EPA enforce stronger fracking pollution standards to help combat the ongoing climate crisis!
