Tell the Department of Interior: Finalize Strong Limits on Oil & gas Pollution

By Environmental Defense Fund

For centuries, the U.S. has protected our public lands to ensure future generations can also revel in their splendor. But on these lands, the oil and gas industry is still venting and flaring far too much dangerous methane pollution from oil and gas wells.

Not only does this release methane—a potent greenhouse gas 84 times more powerful than carbon dioxide in the short-term—but the resulting smog hangs in the air, obscuring our views of these natural landscapes and putting our own health at risk as we enjoy them.
