Methane is one of the most powerful substances emitted into our air. It’s responsible for more warming in the short term than any other greenhouse gas. Yet while the climate crisis threatens our children’s future, Trump is attempting executive action to roll back crucial methane protections.
Trump’s reckless mistake puts our children in jeopardy. But a new bill in the House aims to undo Trump’s rollbacks and safeguard the methane rule for future generations.
Methane pollution comes primarily from fracking operations. While we may not all see fracking operations directly in our backyards — as millions of Americans do — a huge percentage of operations occur on our public lands. That’s land that as taxpayers, we all own. But each year, and estimated $2 billion is wasted due to methane leaks.
It’s bad for our communities, bad for our kids, and bad for our wallets.
Fixing methane leaks is often as simple as just turning a valve or closing a tank hatch — it’s easy, and it just makes sense.
So why is Trump trying so hard to destroy a rule that will protect children for generations to come? This is yet another gift to the oil and gas industry. Another senseless plan that puts our children in the crossfire.
And another moment that moms and dads must speak up to protect our kids — and all children.
Cutting methane pollution is one of the biggest, quickest steps we can take towards climate safety — right now.
Experts agree that we have only ten years to take real action to safeguard our children’s future from climate crisis. Cutting methane pollution is one of our best chances to do just that. Together, we can create a safe future for every child. But only if brave parents like you stand with us in the fight.
