    Default Another EPA Rollback

    Trump administration to reverse limits on methane, a powerful greenhouse gas

    https://www.houstonchronicle.com/new...n-14397062.php

    The Environmental Protection Agency is set to announce Thursday that it will loosen federal rules on methane, a powerful greenhouse gas linked to climate change, according to two senior administration officials.

    The proposed rule will reverse standards enacted under former president Barack Obama that require oil and gas operations to install controls on their operations to curb the release of methane at the well head and in their transmission equipment, including pipelines, processing and storage facilities.

    A senior administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the announcement was not yet public, said Trump officials were confident the oil and gas industry had an economic incentive to limit methane because capturing it allows companies to sell more gas. The agency estimates that the proposed changes, which will be subject to public comment for 60 days after it is published, would save the oil and natural gas industry between $17 million and $19 million a year.

    Last September, the Interior Department eased requirements that oil and gas firms operating on federal and tribal land capture the release of methane.
    WTF is wrong with this administration? I think it is rather telling that that Exxon, Shell an BP came out against it. I'm sure they will all end up self-regulating. Like that will be truthfull.

    Anyone that's been paying attention knows this administration is all in for "profits over people"....I think we can now call it "profits over life."
