Clean Water Action Applauds New Methane Pollution Standard

New standard will help safeguard public health, mitigate climate change, and reduce waste

Washington, D.C. - The Obama Administration today introduced the first-ever methane pollution standards for new and modified oil and gas facilities. This landmark proposal will blunt the growth of methane and smog-forming pollution produced by the industry. The new standards, when finalized, will help to safeguard public health and put the United States closer to meeting the Administration’s goal of reducing oil and gas methane emissions by 40 to 45 percent by 2025.

John Noël, National Oil & Gas Campaigns Coordinator issued the following statement in response to today's announcement:

Act Today for Clean Energy Now!

clean energy wind turbineseWe're heading in the wrong direction, New Jersey. Oil bomb trains are rolling through our neighborhoods. Plans are in the works for massive new pipelines in the Pinelands and Highlands and a Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) terminal and drilling off the Jersey Shore.

But there is something you can do about it! The Christie Administration's Board of Public Utilities (BPU) is accepting public comment on updating its 2011 Energy Master Plan (EMP).

Stop the Salem Fish Kills!

salem fish killsThe Governor Christie Administration has broken yet another promise - to stop the killing of 3 billion fish a year at the Salem 1 and 2 nuclear power plants.

Please take action to stop the fish slaughter and hold Governor Christie to his word.

The State has issued a draft permit that will allow PSE&G to operate Salem business as usual – drawing in over 3 billion gallons of water a day, killing over 3 billion fish a year, discharging heated water and other pollutants into sensitive estuarine waters.

Let's Transition to a Clean Energy Future!

clean energy wind turbinesePipelines, oil trains, fracking, and offshore oil and gas projects are impacting every corner of New Jersey. To fight back, we've formed a powerful new coalition to ensure New Jersey transitions to a clean energy future.

Now, we need your help to urge NJ State Legislators to join us - please contact them today!

Tell the Climate Commission that Reducing Greenhouse Gases Protects Water

md greenhouse gas exec summaryClimate change is impacting our communities. And the impacts - increased flooding of property and wetlands; reduced biodiversity of plants and animals; and substantial harm to crops and food sources - will only get worse unless we take action. 

The primary cause of climate change is pollution from the burning of fossil fuels - we have to focus on reducing those emissions. Maryland’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan was created to reduce climate pollution by 25 percent by the 2020. The Plan will implement some 150 programs and initiatives – learn more here.

The Climate Commission needs to hear what you think of the plan today. RSVP to attend a meeting today.
