Tell Sec. Zinke: Protect our air and stop the waste

This petition had 3,813 supporters

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is attempting to roll-back a common-sense rule that protects Americans from dangerous oil and gas air pollution. 

Sign our petition demanding that Secretary Zinke maintain the 2016 BLM Methane Rule.

In 2016, the Bureau of Land Management created protections to end the release of fossil fuels from oil and gas operations through venting, flaring and leaks. This practice pollutes our air, and is dangerous to those who live near oil and gas facilities. It is also an enormous waste of our tax dollars. Inefficient practices waste natural gas and add up to hundreds of millions of dollars in lost taxpayer royalty revenue every year.

The BLM Methane Rule protections are cost-effective, common sense, and keep our communities healthier. Join our campaign to protect them.

Despite overwhelming public support, Secretary Ryan Zinke and the Trump administration want to gut these vital standards. We deserve better – we cannot let the Trump administration sell out the health of local communities and greenlight the loss of revenue needed to fund our schools, local infrastructure, and more.

Help stop them by signing our petition demanding Secretary Zinke keep the 2016 BLM Methane Rule!
