tonnes eliminated every year!

Thanks for your support!

With all we know, and all we have to lose, why would we allow the unrestricted release of methane into the atmosphere, a greenhouse gas some 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide?

Fortunately, we won’t.

In May of this year, the U.S. Congress blocked a resolution to repeal an Obama-era rule, which restricts methane emissions on public lands. It was a stalwart victory. Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-Calif.) said it was “a win for the taxpayer, a win for the environment, a win for the climate, and a win for common sense.” This way of thinking is taking hold.

The Southern Ute Indian Tribe agrees.

With your support for this project, the Southern Ute Indian Tribe, on their reservation of over 1,000 square miles in the San Juan Basin, voluntarily captures and processes methane emissions from underground coal beds, distributing it via pipeline for use as natural gas. This project eliminates over 60,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every year.

The Southern Ute Tribe does this simply because they believe it is their ancient duty to protect the land and preserve the environment. Now a majority in Congress, by saving this regulation, also believes. By your example, with your support for this project, you uphold an ancient duty and cast your vote for common sense. Thank you.
