What's At Stake
Studies show that U.S. gas pipelines leak as much as 2.7 million tons of methane into our atmosphere each year. That’s the same impact as roughly 50 million passenger cars.
It’s unacceptable. But it’s also a problem we can fix. The Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has a proposal that will help find and fix more leaks — but it’s already well behind schedule. That’s why we need to act fast and urge PHMSA to put their plan into action.
U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg and PHMSA can lead and deliver on this win for climate and safety by directing his agency to finalize the rule this spring. Send a letter and show your support for stronger community safety and climate protections!
