Tell Gov. Wolf: Cut Methane Now
Dear Governor Wolf,
Nearly 1.5 million Pennsylvanians live within a half-mile of oil and gas infrastructure and are exposed to air pollution that is linked to heart and lung disease, threats to pregnancy, and more.
We were glad to see progress on permits that would cut methane and air pollution from future natural gas operations. However, your latest proposal fails to reduce methane pollution from existing gas operations--relying instead on federal air pollution standards that President Trump is rolling back.
We urge you to cut both methane and air pollution from existing natural gas operations.
