You Won’t Believe Which City Has the Cleanest Air in the U.S.

The American Lung Association’s Top City for CLEAN AIR? See below…

Energy Headlines Environmental Activists Don’t Want You to See: ‘CO2 and Methane Emissions Drop Significantly’. New government data shows that carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation are at their lowest levels in nearly 30 years, and natural gas is the key reason why. Similarly, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), methane emissions from oil operations declined 28.8 percent from 1990 to 2015. Over the same period, methane emissions from venting and flaring of associated natural gas production decreased more than 78 percent. The EPA report can be found HERE.

Here’s Another One: In the middle of the NE New Mexico San Juan Basin (oil and gas production area), Farmington, New Mexico topped the 2017 American Lung Association’s list of top 25 Cleanest Cities, as #1 in the U.S. for ‘Cleanest Year-round Particle Pollution. See the report HERE.

New EPA Chief puts Obama era Methane Rule on Hold for 90 Days: NMBC appreciates EPA’s Scott Pruitt delaying implementation of the Venting and Flaring Rule for a minimum of 90 days. That will allow time for a thorough analysis of existing rules, which we believe sufficient, to be completed. The last thing this state needs are more oil and gas wells shut in. That is the expected outcome for marginal wells when the cost of compliance is up to $50,000 per well, Several media outlets contacted NMBC for comment. Read an article by the Santa Fe New Mexican HERE.
