SPEAKERS:
John Rutecki, Regulatory and Legislative Manager at EDF
David Lyon, Senior Scientist at EDF

Inspirational speaker: Arthur Gershkoff

This joint session with JEA focuses on how Methane emissions from the oil and gas industry threaten the climate and waste natural resources. For over a decade, the Environmental Defense Fund has researched O&G methane emissions and advocated for strong regulations and other solutions to reduce emissions. John Rutecki and David Lyon from EDF provide an overview of EPA’s proposed methane rule that would regulate hundreds of thousands of existing sites, plus a summary of EDF’s recent research into the detection, quantification, and mitigation of emissions.

JEA provides ongoing training and templates for monthly letter writing campaigns to local, state, and federal officials. The meetings provide a template, information, and guidance for all those who are interested in amplifying the message of Climate Justice.

Once you learn how easy Jewish Earth Alliance makes it, through their background information and template letter, for everyone to write letters to their federal officials, we hope you will write to your members of Congress now and for the next few months.

National Infrastructure Bank with PA IPL & JEA

This meeting, recorded Wednesday, May 18, 2022, is part of PA IPL’s ongoing partnership with Jewish Earth Alliance (JEA).

TOPIC:
National Infrastructure Bank with PA IPL & JEA

This joint session with JEA focuses on the work being done to introduce the infrastructure bank in Pennsylvania. Members of the National Infrastructure Bank Coalition present information about the work it has been doing in PA to gain support for HR 3339. This bill creates a National Infrastructure Bank to facilitate the long-term financing of infrastructure projects. One of the co-sponsors is Dwight Evans (D-PA 3).

There is broad and growing grassroots support for HR 3339 across the state as evidenced by the large number of private citizens, elected state and local officials, labor organizations, small business owners, and rail advocates, who are volunteering their time and effort to get HR 3339 the support it needs in from Congress. A National Infrastructure Bank would help fund and maintain green infrastructure necessary for sustainability.

As the Covid-19 pandemic, the breakdown of the domestic supply chain, and the rapid rise of inflation have converged to create a “perfect storm” of economic dislocation, it has created a unique opportunity to reverse decades of neglect of critical infrastructure, by rebuilding manufacturing and the American workforce.

Clean Energy and Energy Independence with PA IPL & JEA

This joint session with JEA focuses on how clean energy produced in the USA is the path to true energy independence.

The war in the Ukraine has exposed how vulnerable we are by continuing to rely on imported dirty energy and the gas and oil companies are exploiting the current situation for their own profits. Katie talks about PA-wide and national efforts to help people understand we must quickly transition to clean energy and how to answer people who believe we must drill more gas and oil. She also discusses efforts to get clean energy initiatives in the Federal reconciliation bill.
