Tell the EPA: Support Tough Oil and Gas Air Pollution Standards

    1. Sponsored by

      Environmental Defense Action Fund

The natural gas and oil extraction industry is the largest industrial source of emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), a group of chemicals that contribute to the formation of smog or ground-level ozone.

This harmful pollution is linked to a wide rang of health effects, and can even cause premature deaths.

The EPA's new "Oil & Gas Air Pollution Standards" rule tells polluters that the days of dumping hundreds of thousands of tons of toxic pollution into the air we breathe are over.

Take action today and tell the EPA you strongly support the new regulations. Together, we can overwhelm polluter opposition and prevent thousands of premature deaths.

      The world and ALL living beings are in desperate need of clean soil, water and air. The EPA should take a strong stance against further pollution NOW, when we all want a healthy life in the future.

      I would like the government to look at the facts. The people of China are suffering and a price is being put on the heads of all living creatures that have a natural right to clean air and water. MOVE THIS FORWARD OR FACE THE NATION!!!

      We need to also fight to stop the KXL pipeline. According to James Hansen, tar sands extraction will make runaway global warming a certainty.
