Take action: Trump's EPA is trying to delay pollution protections. Tell them NO!

After Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement, his EPA is now trying to take us backward by delaying key climate and pollution protections put in place by the Obama administration.

That’s right: the agency tasked with protecting our environment is actually trying to put a two-year delay on new methane pollution standards that protect our communities from dangerous pollution and climate disruption. The only people benefitting from a freeze on EPA methane standards are corporate polluters and their allies. The head of the EPA is supposed to represent the best interests of the American people – not the worst actors in the oil and gas industry.

This is unacceptable. Tell the EPA that they’re supposed to protect our communities not help the oil and gas industry pollute them.

Don't delay the methane pollution standards. Docket EPA-HQ-OAR-2010-0505
I oppose any delay in the implementation of methane pollution standards. Staying these protections will put our environment and public health at risk. If anything, the EPA should strengthen methane pollution safeguards. We depend on the EPA to protect us from harmful pollution that makes it harder to breathe, aggravates asthma, and fills our air with toxic compounds. The EPA must fulfill its mission to “protect human health and the environment” by maintaining and enforcing these standards and protecting our children's health. EPA has an obligation to protect all Americans from harmful methane pollution. Any attempt to slow or dismantle standards that cut pollution from the oil and gas industry is a direct assault on our health.
