In May, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a public engagement process as they begin to craft new rules to tackle methane and associated pollution from new and existing oil and gas operations. Through the rule-making process, the EPA has the ability to limit methane pollution by upwards of 65%. This is a major step in combating climate breakdown.
Last week, as a part of the rule-making process, several Northern Plains members participated in the EPA’s listening sessions by offering public comments. Now, we must keep up the momentum and we need YOUR help to do it!
