今天的甲烷CRA投票是第一步

更强的油气甲烷规则是拜登EPA的第二步

背景:Today the US House of Representatives voted 229-191 to pass a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution that, along with the companion Senate resolution passed earlier this year, will reinstate the Environmental Protection Agency’s methane pollution safeguards before they were weakened by the previous administration. However, simply reinstating the Obama-era rules would not be enough for the Biden administration to meet climate goals. Even if they were applied to existing sources (the Obama rules only applied to newly permitted sources), the Obama rules would only cut methane pollution by 20 percent.

拜登总统和环保署管理员迈克尔·瑞安有承诺制定更强大的奥巴马规则,但没有致力于特定的甲烷还原目标。即使有更强的规则,符合美国的气候承诺也必须尽快停止所有新的石油和天然气提取和基础设施。

“现在代表大会已经完成了撤消四年的鲁莽特朗普行政忽视美国的甲烷气体污染问题,拜登行政必须做到这一点。

“作为本条例草案向总统的办公桌签署了他的签名,拜登还应指示EPA使用清洁空气行为的全力,以将石油和天然气的甲烷排放量降低65%到2025年。”
