In response, Sierra Club Director of Beyond Dirty Fuels campaign Lena Moffitt released the following statement:
“The methane safeguards reflect EPA’s duty to protect our communities from dangerous pollution and are consistent with decades of action taken by the agency. Any lawsuit attempting to block them is an attack on clean air and a stable climate.
“Communities around the country continue to suffer from pollution from the oil and gas industry, yet these attorneys general aim to block these common-sense standards rather than protect their own citizens — ignoring both the well-being of their own residents, as well as the strong desire of Americans across the country to see these safeguards put in place.
“The Sierra Club is confident that these standards will be upheld in the courts.”
