With methane rule rollback, Interior Dept. continues Trump assault on climate, taxpayers & health

Statement from Earthworks Policy Director Lauren Pagel

“On the heels of the EPA’s rollback last week, Interior Secretary Zinke’s methane reduction rollback today continues the Trump Administration’s assault on public health, global climate, taxpayers’ pocketbooks, common sense, and a livable planet for future generations.

When even the world’s largest oil companies recognize the need for methane safeguards, reasonable people cannot pretend that the Trump Administration is rolling them back in the public’s interest they purport to serve.” — Earthworks’ Policy Director Lauren Pagel
