Today I attended the EPA vs Rick Perry Showdown in Dallas.
The Dallas Observer has a great write up.
People were grateful for the intervention and asked the EPA for more.
After I finished my 5 minute comment, a man stopped me in the hall to tell me that methane releases do not have any effect on our air or the environment. He said it dissipates and goes up out of the atmosphere. He said, “Little Lady, you need to get your facts straight.” I think he might have had too much tea.
At noon I spoke briefly at the Sierra Club presser. After that several Sierra Club members told me that natural gas really is a clean fuel. Man! We have a lot of work to do if we can’t even get the environmental community fully on board. The choice should not be one dirty fossil fuel over another! We need to move completely away from fossil fuels!
