Methane Regulation

On May 2, 2013, Scott Pruitt and 12 other attorneys general sent a letter to the EPA urging the agency to avoid regulating methane emissions.

The emails released Tuesday make clear that Devon Energy had a hand in drafting the letter, which argued that voluntary ;) industry efforts to restrict emissions were sufficient , that federal emissions estimates were inaccurate, and that regulating methane fell outside the purview of the law.

The letter was meant to counter threats by northeastern states that they would file a lawsuit against the EPA for failing to regulate methane. “In sum,” the letter reads, “regulation of methane emissions from oil and gas facilities is not ‘appropriate’ under the analysis contemplated by [the Clean Air Act].”

Emails Reveal EPA Chief Scott Pruitt’s Dirty Dealings With Oil and Gas Industry

Agelbert NOTE: As you will learn in the article, even those e-mails that have been released ARE NOT the whole story because they have been redacted along with a bunch others that have NOT been released because the holy A.G. office of Oklahoma considers them "privileged". These fossil fuel TOOLS never stop prevaricating and double talking to cover their crimes and corruption. Prison is too good for those destroyers of our biosphere.

The Fossil Fuelers   DID THE Climate Trashing, human health depleteing CRIME,   but since they have ALWAYS BEEN liars and conscience free crooks, they are trying to AVOID   DOING THE TIME or     PAYING THE FINE!     Don't let them get away with it! Pass it on!   

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
