Ask the B.C. government to cut methane from fracking

B.C.’s best bet for cutting climate pollution

We have a short window to get the B.C. government to enact one of the cheapest, fastest, and most effective climate solutions available.

The B.C. government is drafting regulations that could drastically reduce emissions of one of the most potent climate pollutants: methane. We need the B.C. government to implement strong regulations using best practices from leading jurisdictions and not let the oil and gas industry off the hook.

The oil and gas industry continues to oppose strong climate policies, despite warnings from scientists that we're on the path to climate catastrophe. This is an opportunity for real, measurable change.

Send your message now to eliminate methane pollution from B.C.’s biggest industrial carbon polluter: the oil and gas sector.

Methane is 84 times more powerful than carbon dioxide over a 20-year time frame. Leading scientists estimate this gas alone is responsible for a quarter of the changes to Earth’s climate. Recent research also reveals that methane pollution from B.C.’s oil and gas sector (mainly fracked gas) is at least 2.5 times greater than has been reported. This finding challenges the claim that natural gas, including liquefied natural gas, is a “clean” transition fuel.

If we take action, reducing methane emissions can be a big part of the solution.

This campaign is being coordinated in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation.
