Beyond Carbon Statement on Trump Administration’s Repeal of Methane Regulations

By Beyond Carbon Spokesperson

Today, a spokesperson for Beyond Carbon, the largest coordinated effort to tackle the climate crisis ever undertaken in the United States, issued the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s rollback on methane emission regulations:

“Today’s announcement is another reminder that as the Trump Administration continues to side with big oil and gas over the health and safety of the American people, we simply cannot wait for a new Administration to undo these wrongs. President Trump’s decision to reverse regulations on methane — one of the most dangerous, potent greenhouse gases and major contributors to the climate crisis — is an attack on our country’s safety. We need more aggressive action now — and the power to act lies in state capitols, legislatures, and city halls. Cities, regions, and states are already leading efforts to move beyond gas but more can — and must — be done and that’s why we must elect climate champions at all levels of government in 2020 and beyond.”
