California has long been a leader on clean energy and the environment—not just in the U.S., but world-wide. Right now, your state is about to miss out on a critical chance to lead again.
A new state regulatory proposal lets oil & gas companies get away with the bare minimum. How? By simply requiring annual inspections, when it's proven that quarterly inspections better ensure that we catch equipment malfunctions, poor maintenance, and other mistakes that can lead to a powerful increase in greenhouse gas emissions. What's more, more regular inspections prevent waste of a valuable energy resource, saving gas that otherwise could be used from escaping into the air.
Before the next draft of the rule is released, make sure the California Air Resources Board hears from you. Tell them we need stronger regulations.
