“President Obama’s executive order today, that hinges on the voluntary initiative, the Oil and Gas Methane Partnership, is more evidence that his administration is not serious about reducing methane emissions from the oil and gas sector. One does not solve the greatest environmental crisis in our lifetime with half measures and by running interference for the petroleum industry.”
“Until the administration commits the nation’s resources to creating an energy future based on a real transition to renewable energy and energy efficiency, and until it stops looking to Wall Street and the energy industry to lead on climate, we will continue down the path to more climate chaos.”
