New Proposed EPA Rules and Measuring and Reducing Methane Emissions with PA IPL & JEA

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.

There is no fee for this program; your donations help us keep doing the work.

We will be meeting him to discuss the $555 billion climate and justice package included in the House-passed reconciliation package. This would put the country and out state on a path to meet President Biden’s ambitious climate action targets. Pennsylvania investments would include roughly $500 million to improve water infrastructure, $1 billion for clean manufacturing, $3 billion for mine and well reclamation, and $8 billion for building out a cleaner, more reliable electric grid. We cannot afford to leave that money on the table. Other key policy priorities in the package are the creation of the Civilian Climate Corps, and making the clean energy tax credits available to all families through refundability and direct pay.

Please help close the deal and pass the reconciliation legislation.

Training: June 8 from 2:00-3:00pm
Lobby Call: June 8 from 3:00-3:30pm
