Add your voice: strong super pollutant rules right for NM
New Mexico is home to a giant methane “hotspot” that is hovering over the San Juan Basin in the Four Corners Region, contributing to higher rates of asthma in communities already coping with a legacy of air and water pollution from coal plants. It’s common practice for literally tons of methane to be released into the air during oil and gas processes. And yet, the oil and gas industry doesn’t think they need to do anything about the direct impacts on our families and communities. Help fight back and tell the BLM that you support strong methane capture rules to protect our health and resources NOW.
