URGENT TODAY IS THE LAST DAY FOR COMMENTS!!!

EPA is taking comments on new proposed greenhouse gas reporting rules for petroleum and natural gas systems.  Greenhouse gases – Methane (CH4), Carbon dioxide (CO2) and Nitrous oxide (N2O) are air pollutants that cause global warming.   Good reporting rules are the first step in a two-part regulatory effort to address emissions from poorly regulated oil and gas production.    These new reporting rules are important because they require precisely what TCEQ refused to provide the citizens of Texas:  DISCLOSURE.

Full disclosure of the global warming pollution emitted by oil and gas facilities would:

Give our policymakers and elected officials the critical information needed to fight pollution that erodes the health of our communities and environment; Guarantee transparency – letting you, your family and friends know the largest emitters in your neighborhood and across the country; and Help hold large emitters accountable for their greenhouse gas discharges.

To learn more about the proposed reporting rule, go to EPA’s Proposed Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule for Petroleum & Natural Gas Systems.
