Did you know that Pennsylvania sits atop one of the world's largest natural gas fields, and is the second-largest shale gas producer in the country? That means if Pennsylvania takes action to rein in the out-of-control methane pollution from the oil and gas industry, it would have a huge impact.
Right now, the oil and gas industry is running amok, and public health, our air, and our communities are paying the price. But there's also invisible damage being done -- to our climate. The methane pollution the oil and gas industry releases annually has the climate-disrupting impact of more than 160 coal-burning power plants!
It's clear that fracking can never be made safe, but Pennsylvania can show leadership on fighting climate change by taking bold action to rein in climate-damaging methane pollution from the oil and gas industry.
Take a moment to ensure the Wolf administration moves as quickly as possible to put new safeguards against oil and gas industry methane pollution in place.
