The Latest On: Climate Change
Bradley Marshall, Attorney, Florida Office, Earthjustice: "Cities have been at the forefront in recognizing the threat of climate change and promoting the transition to renewable clean energy, and basically this is putting up a big stop sign and saying, 'no,' they are not allowed to take action to move the state forward and serve their own constituents,"
Drew Caputo, Vice President of Litigation, Earthjustice: “The federal oil and gas leasing program needs serious reform if America is going to address climate change. Nearly 25% of this country’s climate-cooking emissions come from fossil fuels pumped or mined from lands and waters that belong to all Americans. This is unsustainable.”
Robin Cooley, Attorney, Rocky Mountain Office, Earthjustice: “It's significant because pneumatics are such a large source of methane emissions from this industry. This is a step in the right direction, but there's definitely going to be more that needs to be done to meet those targets in the future.”
Drew Caputo, Vice President of Litigation, Earthjustice: “The climate crisis and the biodiversity crisis isn’t standing still.”
Matt Vespa, Attorney, Clean Energy Program, Earthjustice: "There's this broader play by the gas industry to suggest there's some Holy Grail that will allow us to keep the gas system running as it currently does, just with a different fuel."
