SUPPORTED methane regulation petition to the EPA: Signed the Climate Law Institute, Center for Biological Diversity petition to EPA to regulate methane and ethane as volatile organic compounds under the Clean Air Act.

In turn, it would protect communities from asthma, which afflicts 1 in 13 Americans and is the most frequent chronic illness in children. April 2021
