Energy Dept. methane steps are welcome, but no substitute for EPA rules
Statement of Earthworks Policy Director Lauren Pagel
July 29, 2014
While we applaud the commitments made by the Department of Energy, labor unions, utility groups and other stakeholders, voluntary measures and new research initiatives don’t adequately protect communities and the climate.
These rules can be a first step down the road to limit dangerous methane pollution and begin to truly shift our energy systems away from an “all of the above” strategy to one that throws the full weight of our resources behind renewable energy.
