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.
