In response to new regulations on methane emissions announced by The White House,’s Executive Director, May Boeve, issued the following statement:

“Today’s rules are a good step to cut dangerous methane emissions, but the truth is: no amount of regulations will ever make fracking safe. Fracking endangers communities, worsens climate change by prolonging our dependence on fossil fuels, and pollutes water sources across our country. That’s why the only safe way to deal with fracking is to end it, and quickly shift our society onto renewable energy.”
