BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT: STOP WASTING NATURAL GAS

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a department of the Department of the Interior, is wasting natural gas on public and tribal land.

As soon as President Trump took office, he attacked crucial limits on the amount of methane pollution that the oil and gas industry is allowed to vent, leak, and flare, when drilling for natural gas. Consequently, the BLM wants to remove protections from oil and gas wells on their land. This would harm American's health and safety. We need to tell the BLM to keep the stronger protections that we all deserve.

Every year, the oil and gas industry wastes about $330 million worth of natural gas. Taxpayers pay for this and it is harmful to our health. Natural gas is a fossil fuel. Our readers very likely know what fossil fuels do to our health and to our environment.

Please contact Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and demand that the BLM keep the stronger protections that we all deserve.

Here is the contact information for Secretary Zinke:

Thanks for taking immediate action.

 

ARCTIC WILDLIFE REFUGE SIGN-ON OPPORTUNITY

The Trump Administration budget includes opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling. They snuck the oil into the revenue side of the federal budget as a reckless speculative source of money.

Such drilling could decimate the 10,000+ year old Alaska Native Gwich'in civilization's land-based livelihood and spirituality.

Are you willing to sign-on to a letter saying NO to oil drilling in the Arctic Refuge?

The letter is here:http://www.faithforthearctic.org/take-action. It is being managed by the National Religious Partnership for the Environment (NRPE). They do not keep an e-advocacy list and will not hold on to contact information of signers.

Please consider signing the letter. Thank you!

 

HURRICANES, WILDFIRES--CLIMATE SILENCE

We've all seen it. Multiple hurricanes and wildfires, but no talk about climate change. Is the media being told to stay out of the issue of climate change by deniers? Why isn't climate being mentioned?

These escalating disasters must be a wake up call to all of us, a catalyst to connect the dots between extreme weather events, climate change, and the cause--the fossil fuel industry. Why can't we have a discussion about what is behind these storms? An honest discussion!

If you tweet (#ClimateSilence), use Facebook, or can contact your elected officials, now is the time to get involved. Demand that the media ends the deafening climate silence by asking the questions that need to be asked and telling the stories that need to be told.

We know that climate is impacting extreme weather. Science has said that for years. We don't need to have that discussion again. What we need is a discussion about what we're going to do about it. We need to end public support for fossil fuels and keep them where they belong--in the ground. We need to go renewable--wind, solar. Fossil fuel companies need to get out of politics and financially supporting climate deniers. Our planet needs help. Will you help by posting this on social media and/or contacting your elected officials?
