The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler proposal to weaken the EPA’s New Source Performance Standards, which have been in force for almost a year, for the oil and gas industry. These commonsense safeguards were designed to limit the release of methane pollution, a potent greenhouse gas, from oil and gas infrastructure, and also to help protect communities from other harmful pollutants.
Acting Administrator Wheeler’s attempt to weaken these protections and create loopholes for polluters is a blatant giveaway to oil and gas interests at the expense of communities’ health and well-being.
