Bad Air Day: EPA Holds Hearings on Oil and Gas Air Pollution Standards

Tapping oil and natural gas is part of America’s energy portfolio, but it can come at an unhealthy price for air, water, and wildlife. The Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) is holding three public hearing on proposed air pollution standards for oil and natural gas production.  The EPA hearings are in Pennsylvania, Colorado and Texas and will last from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time.

A bad air day can make a lot of other days much worse for people and wildlife. The EPA is seeking input to balance its proposals to reduce air pollution from the oil and gas industry with responsible energy development. Even if you can’t attend a hearing, you can still speak up for wildlife impacted by energy development.
