Say 'thank you' for this important win
May 15, 2017
Last week we won a significant victory. The Senate voted, 51-49, to preserve a regulation that requires drillers to reduce leaks, flaring and venting of methane (natural gas) from oil and gas wells on federal lands. That's good for the climate—methane is a powerful greenhouse gas—and for health, as it simultaneously reduces co-emissions of toxic gases.
This win also means something more. You see, this regulation had become a showdown between the oil and gas industry on the one hand, and health and environment voices on the other. This time, health and the environment won.
It's not often we beat back the oil and gas industry.
Could you send a quick thank-you note?
Thank you's are always welcome. They build good will. They make the world a nicer place. And since everyone likes to be thanked, they help build your influence with your legislators.
Note: This action is only targeting Democratic and Independent senators, so residents of other states are not able to participate. The three Republicans who voted with them have already been thanked.
