We Need Your Help to Win a National Clean Air Victory
Starting This Wednesday at 1pm
at Dallas City Hall
Dallas is writing a new gas drilling ordinance. As part of this new set of rules, we have a chance to win the nation’s first “off-sets” program for air pollution from gas drilling and processing.
Off-sets would require gas operators to pay for decreasing as much greenhouse gas air pollution as they’re estimated to emit every year. If a company’s annual air pollution emissions total 5 tons a year, it would have to fund projects that would reduce air pollution by 5 tons a year.
Every other major industrial source of air pollution in the DFW area is already subject to off-sets because of anti-smog regulations. Even though they can emit more air pollution than many of these industrial sources, a loophole allows gas operators to escape this requirement.
