Stop Methane Pollution:
Click here to tell the Trump EPA you support strong methane pollution standards for the oil and gas industry.
The Trump administration is trying to roll back the EPA’s methane pollution standards. These standards were designed to limit the release of methane pollution, a potent greenhouse gas, from the oil and gas industry. According to recent research, U.S. oil and gas operations emit at least 13 million metric tons of methane annually, which has the same climate impact as operating nearly 300 coal-burning power plants for a year.
Methane is also hazardous to our health. Methane and other air pollutants from oil and gas development contribute to ground-level ozone pollution and cause a number of serious health complications including respiratory damage, cancer, birth defects, and nervous system damage. People of faith share a sacred calling to care for others, especially the most vulnerable people in our communities.
Paris Agreement: We’re Still In Petition
Despite the strong support of a majority of Americans and major U.S. corporations, the Trump administration has announced its intention to back out of the Paris climate accord. Official withdrawal by the U.S. would be a stunning, unprecedented blow to a historic global agreement.
Let’s show the world that no matter what the White House says: we’re still in. We can do our part. We, communities of faith and individuals of conscience, will do our part. We will reduce emissions, move to clean energy where we can, and continue to advocate for a sustainable future.
Sign the Pledge to let your elected officials, the UN, and the world know that you are one of the many people of faith who have taken action to care for the earth. Let them you you are taking the Paris Pledge seriously and expect them to keep America’s promise to the world and keep us in the Paris Agreement.
