I oppose the proposal to gut the Bureau of Land Managements Methane and Waste Prevention Rule.

Methane waste and pollution is a serious problem on public lands. Leaking, venting, and flaring from natural gas facilities wastes hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer owned natural resources every year. The new proposal eliminates key provisions which protect against exposure to dangerous pollutants and promotes the waste of 299 billion cubic feet of natural gas, enough energy to heat nearly 500,000 homes each year for the next ten years. In addition, your proposal is a huge step backward on the fight to tackle climate change, resulting in the same amount of short-term climate damage as 8.3 million cars driven over ten years.

Rolling back the Methane and Waste Prevention Rule results in a free pass to oil and gas companies to waste American energy and pollute on our public lands. Capturing wasted gas would promote responsible energy production and job growth while safeguarding American health and royalty revenue.

I urge you to halt the effort to gut the rule and instead protect our public lands, health and pocketbooks from methane waste and pollution.

Methane gas is a national (federal) resource. The BLM has responsibility to administer federal lands to conserve, develop and collect revenue from methane.

The rescinding of the prior administration Methane Waste Prevention Rule allows industry to waste our resources, and causes the loss of multi millions of revenue annually.

The BLM can better serve we, the people of the United States, by regulating industry to conserve methane, and maximize federal revenues.

I request the BLM to reconsider and revise rules to prevent methane waste.

To whom it may concern:
Keep methane waste protection in place! I urge you NOT to replace the original 2016 methane waste rule.

The new version is much weaker, and is nothing but a rollback for the oil and gas industry. Common sense pollution protections is needed. Methane is a public resource that should not be wasted, but rather captured for the public's benefit. Methane is also a 'super-pollutant' that threatens people, the nation's wildlife and great outdoors. Methane gas waste on public lands is a serious threat and a poor use of the nation's public resources.

The original rule, which was approved in 2016 after much industry and public input, would have modernized 35-year-old standards that allowed the oil and gas industry to vent and flare enough methane into our skies to heat 6 million homes annually. This rule was a win-win for the environment and the economy: It reduced pollution and captured a wasted energy resource, while generating royalty revenue on public lands. The new rule does none of this- it is nothing but a gift to industry interests. It is bad for public lands and wildlife.

The American people, wildlife, and environment desperately need and deserve the original common-sense protections from oil and gas methane waste. It is your duty to protect this and not the corporate oil and gas industry.

Thank you for considering.

I urge you to halt the effort to gut the rule and instead protect our public lands, health and pocketbooks from methane waste and pollution.

On March 28, 2017, President Tiny Hands issued E.O. 13783. On that date he probably also found time to binge watch cable news and tweet hate speech. So ya gotta ask yourselves, BLM: why do you pay attention to anything this moron does?

Oh, and the same goes for your boss, Ryan "Garrison Flag" Zinke. You know that this doofus only cares about exploiting and degrading our public lands. So let him play with his horsie, and his little flag, and his little challenge coins while you get your work done.

Steel and Iron and Rare Earth elements mining and production are a vital national security. Agencies need to provide funds and made available for the construction, alteration, maintenance, or repair of a public building or public work unless the iron, steel, and manufactured goods are produced in the United States. America needs to address the dumping of minerals and or products. A quota on all imports from all countries to the United States. Also recognized the close relation of the economic welfare of the United States to its national security with the impact of foreign competition on the economic welfare of individual domestic industries; and any substantial unemployment, decrease in revenues of government, loss of skills, or any other serious effects resulting from the displacement of any domestic products by excessive imports, without excluding other factors, in determining whether a weakening of the U.S. economy by such imports may impair national security. imports are causing substantial unemployment, decrease in revenues of government, loss of skills or investment, or other serious effects resulting from the displacement of any domestic products by excessive imports.
Agency Lead role in stimulating cooperative work among private industrial organizations in efforts to surmount technological hurdles, and otherwise has been responsible for assisting in the improvement of industrial technology.
The future of USA , requires Improvements in manufacturing and product technology depend on fundamental scientific and engineering research to develop (A) the precise and accurate measurement methods and measurement standards needed to improve quality and reliability, and (B) new technological processes by which such improved methods may be used in practice to improve manufacturing and to assist industry to transfer important laboratory discoveries into commercial products.
USA needs to craft a strategy to retaliate against China, a book published in 1999 by two People Liberation Army, colonels entitled 'Unrestricted Warfare shows the implementing a strategy of its own towards the United States and against our private sector companies.

Do not expand the use of flaring without detailed assessments and understanding of the environmental impact of these activities. You know that methane gas is an even worse contributor to global warming than CO2. You know this. It is always easier to pollute cheaply and let somebody else deal with the expensive consequences. It is a laughable argument that oil companies posting record profits cannot afford to implement these protections. Take the high road to excellence via rigorous stewardship of the environment instead of kicking the can down the gutter to protect oil company profits.

Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke has proposed to rollback the Bureau of Land Management's methane waste rule, a move that puts polluters and lobbyists ahead of taxpayers, Western communities, and hard-working families.

More help must be given to the Board Patrol..... The Federal government spends a net amount of $45.8 billion on illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children. This amount includes expenditures for public education, medical care, justice enforcement initiatives, welfare programs and other miscellaneous costs. It also factors in the meager amount illegal aliens pay to the federal government in income, social security, Medicare and excise taxes. The total cost of illegal immigration to U.S. taxpayers is both staggering and crippling. In 2013, estimated the total cost to be approximately $113 billion. So, in under four years, the cost has risen nearly $3 billion. This is a disturbing and unsustainable trend. At the federal, state, and local levels, taxpayers shell out approximately $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by the presence of more than 12.5 million illegal aliens, and about 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. That amounts to a tax burden of approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member and a total of $116,000,000,000. Demonstration Authorization Act of 1978, Federal Advisory Committee Act of 1972 (FACA). The national government should be deferential to the States when taking action that affects the policymaking discretion of the States and should act only with the greatest caution where State or local governments have identified uncertainties regarding the constitutional or statutory authority of the national government. With respect to Federal statutes and regulations administered by the States, the national government shall grant the States the maximum administrative discretion possible. Intrusive Federal oversight of State administration is neither necessary nor desirable. Required federal agencies must consult with state and local officials early in the process of developing proposed regulation where the regulation will impose substantial direct compliance costs on State and local governments and that is not required by statute.

RED FLAG : Key finding from the USGS mineral report is during 2016 the U.S. was 100 percent import reliant on 20 mineral commodities, including rare earths, manganese and niobium, which are among a suite of materials often designated as "critical" or "strategic" because they are essential to the economy and their supply may be disrupted.
Aluminum: U.S. production of primary aluminum decreased for the fourth consecutive year, declining by about 47 percent in 2016 to the lowest level since 1951. During the year, three primary smelters were shut down reducing production capacity by more than 700,000 metric tons per year. U.S. imports of aluminum (crude and semi-manufactures) increased by 18 percent in 2016. Iron Ore: U.S. iron ore production decreased by 11 percent in 2016. Six iron ore mines in the United States had either been idled, reduced production, or closed permanently. Steel produced from basic oxygen furnaces, which consume iron ore, declined in 2016.
America needs to reopen the Agency of Bureau of Mines: Bureau's Minerals Information functions were transferred to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in early 1996, Minerals information activities moved to the U.S. Geological Survey and the Bureau of Land Management. 66%, of its 1995 programs ceased, and approximately 1,000 of its employees were dismissed.

This proposed rule makes the following claim:
"...there are no scientific tools or methodologies that can reliably predict the degree of impact that implementing the 2016 final rule would have on global or regional climate change or on changes to biotic and abiotic systems that accompany climate change. "

In fact, the marginal impact of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere on the climate of the United States is well known, and are discussed in detail in the National Climate Assessment. https://nca2014.globalchange.gov/report/regions/great-plains

The BLM-proposed changes to the methane rules misplaced and environmentally harmful. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas and its release must be minimized. Intentional release by flaring is wasteful and should be banned. This practice has over many decades wasted enormous amounts of an important commodity because it was inconvenient to market it. This is insufficient reason to release it to the atmosphere. It should either be captured and put to use or not produced. Unintentional leakage of methane from sites where it is produced are very well documented in the scientific literature, and must be regulated to minimize the losses. Existing rules help discourage careless production methods and should be kept in place.

Dear Secretary Ryan Zinke,

I am writing today in strong opposition to BLM's recent proposal to weaken crucial methane waste protections.

Doing so defends the worst actors of the oil & gas industry, and puts their interests above the health and safety of American families and their communities, all while wasting taxpayer dollars. Since 2013, more than $1.7 billion worth of natural gas has been squandered on public and tribal lands.

The best in the business have made it clear that this problem can be fixed using available, low-cost technologies. And the majority of Americans want to see strong protections implemented.

You need to hear our voices on this important decision. Please schedule public hearings across the West so that the Americans affected by this proposal can give their input.

And instead of moving forward with this dangerous new proposal, please leave in place the current rules that effectively protected Americans' health, safety, and wallets.

Sincerely,

I oppose the proposal to gut the Bureau of Land Managements Methane and Waste Prevention Rule.

Methane waste and pollution is a serious problem on public lands. Leaking, venting, and flaring from natural gas facilities wastes hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer owned natural resources every year. The new proposal eliminates key provisions which protect against exposure to dangerous pollutants and promotes the waste of 299 billion cubic feet of natural gas, enough energy to heat nearly 500,000 homes each year for the next ten years. In addition, your proposal is a huge step backward on the fight to tackle climate change, resulting in the same amount of short-term climate damage as 8.3 million cars driven over ten years.

Rolling back the Methane and Waste Prevention Rule results in a free pass to oil and gas companies to waste American energy and pollute on our public lands. Capturing wasted gas would promote responsible energy production and job growth while safeguarding American health and royalty revenue.

I urge you to halt the effort to gut the rule and instead protect our public lands, health and pocketbooks from methane waste and pollution.

Rescission, many Nations need America Clean gas. To help any possible shortage of gas supply, provide jobs and income to Americans, USA needs to speed drilling permits and pipelines for export LNG terminals . Asia remained the world's largest LNG importer in 2017, and needs more USA clean LNG gas. There was also significant demand from Southern Europe, which imported an additional 10 million tonnes, more from USA is needed, to help a possible shortage of gas energy even with double the forecasts. for the first time, the number of LNG spot cargoes reached more than 1,100, around three cargoes a day. Chinese imports surged past South Korea's. with total demand for LNG in China climbing and reached 38 million tonnes, a result of continued economic growth and policies to reduce local air pollution through clean gas switching. reports show significant demand from traditional importers in Asia and Europe. LNG has played an increasing role in the global energy system over the last few decades. LNG provide flexible, reliable and cleaner energy supply for other countries around the world. Asia demand rose by 17 million tonnes. Clean natural gas demand is expected to grow twice the rate. Clean gas is expected to make up high percentage of energy demand growth over the next two decades. Government policies focusing on air pollution had a positive impact on clean gas demand. In China plan targeted 350-380 billion cubic metres of gas demand by 2020. In South Korea, gas, China imported gas LNG from more than 20 countries. Number of countries importing LNG has quadrupled, with LNG trade increasing from 100 million tonnes in 2000 to nearly 300 million tonnes in 2017. the global LNG market size had grown by 29 million tonnes with 45% of planned capacity expansion completed. Gas demand grew by 31 billion cubic metres - up 15% from 2016. LNG buying occurred during winter to help meet strong demand. Gas demand also increased in the industrial sector and in transport, with LNG being used to fuel trucks. In 2017, over 70,000 new LNG fueled trucks were added. 1100 Spot cargoes delivered - 17 % increase over last year

Dear Secretary Ryan Zinke,

I am writing today in strong opposition to BLM's recent proposal to weaken crucial methane waste protections.

I believe we already don't charge nearly enough from oil, gas and mining companies to extract material from public lands (and are weak in getting full reclamation and environmental reparation fees, up front). But allowing methane burnoff waste is a slap in American's face.

Allowing this is our public administration putting the corporation's that are the worst actors of the oil & gas industry interests above the health and safety of American families and their communities, all while wasting taxpayer dollars. Since 2013, more than $1.7 billion worth of natural gas has been squandered on public and tribal lands.

Dear Secretary Ryan Zinke,

I am writing today in strong opposition to BLM's recent proposal to weaken crucial methane waste protections.

Doing so defends the worst actors of the oil & gas industry, and puts their interests above the health and safety of American families and their communities, all while wasting taxpayer dollars. Since 2013, more than $1.7 billion worth of natural gas has been squandered on public and tribal lands.

The best in the business have made it clear that this problem can be fixed using available, low-cost technologies. And the majority of Americans want to see strong protections implemented.

Without public hearings, their voices aren't being heard. Please establish public hearings across the West so that the Americans affected by this proposal can give their input.

And instead of moving forward with this dangerous new proposal, please leave in place the current limits that effectively protected Americans' health, safety, and wallets.

Sincerely,

Obama added more than $80 billion of regulatory burden on the American economy in just 8 years of his term, hurting the poor and giving hard earned American money to China, and Billionairs. Daily Air idex is below, see for yourself.
A flare is an important safety device, particularly at gas processing plants. In an emergency situation where equipment or piping becomes over-pressured, special valves on the equipment automatically release gas through piping to flare stacks. In the absence of safety flares, plants would be at higher risk for fires and explosions. Gas flaring is an integral part of the exploration, production and processing of natural gas, liquids and oil from shale. Testing is important in order to determine the pressure, flow and composition of the gas or oil from the well. Flares are also used as an outlet for gas during maintenance and equipment repairs (such as flaring during pigging events or flaring after cleaning wells). Flare gas systems are used to manage waste gas that cannot be efficiently captured and returned to the system for processing. in situations where capturing the gas is not possible, it is better from an air quality perspective to burn the gas through a flare system rather than vent it directly into the atmosphere. parameters for the installation, operation and maintenance of any flares used to help control emissions are already in place. Rules are already in place for oil and gas well sites also cover flaring, including a prohibition on open venting of gases to the atmosphere. drilling companies, already employ green completions as part of their current practices.

I oppose the proposal to gut the Bureau of Land Managements Methane and Waste Prevention Rule.

Methane waste and pollution is a serious problem on public lands. Leaking, venting, and flaring from natural gas facilities wastes hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer owned natural resources every year. The new proposal eliminates key provisions which protect against exposure to dangerous pollutants and promotes the waste of 299 billion cubic feet of natural gas, enough energy to heat nearly 500,000 homes each year for the next ten years. In addition, your proposal is a huge step backward on the fight to tackle climate change, resulting in the same amount of short-term climate damage as 8.3 million cars driven over ten years.

Rolling back the Methane and Waste Prevention Rule results in a free pass to oil and gas companies to waste American energy and pollute on our public lands. Capturing wasted gas would promote responsible energy production and job growth while safeguarding American health and royalty revenue.

I urge you to halt the effort to gut the rule and instead protect our public lands, health and pocketbooks from methane waste and pollution.

Dear Secretary Ryan Zinke,

Methane Recapture must be a mandated process. Consider the seat belt for one moment. Are the inclusion of seat belts in all vehicles there because the auto manufacturers wanted to install them or did they become standard because they had to be pressured to do the right thing and were mandated? You and I know the answer. And consider this, those seat belts, allowed the survivors to go purchase their replacement vehicle. That alone benefited the auto manufactures and as similar Methane Capture does also. So, methane recapture is no different and you and I know it won't be bothered with if it is not mandated. Frankly the current rules are weak but better than stripping them away. For the health and safety of our Naton please Leave the current rules in place (or better yet, strengthen them). I am writing today in strong opposition to BLM's recent proposal to weaken crucial methane waste protections.

Doing so defends the worst actors of the oil & gas industry, and puts their interests above the health and safety of American families and their communities, all while wasting taxpayer dollars. Since 2013, more than $1.7 billion worth of natural gas has been squandered on public and tribal lands.

Dear Secretary Ryan Zinke,

I am a Vietnam veteran stewarding land in southern Oregon, a Pacific Northwest born Jack of All Trades. As I prepare to pass on the legacy of land to future generations, I fear it will be spoiled, less vibrant, less supportive. The ground, the air, the waters, all have been impacted by human caused environmental consequences. What amazes me is that we have foreseen this problem for more than half a century, we have developed the technology to reduce known impacts, yet we fail to implement these methods in a deliberate manner. As a country we continue to invest in the very causes of the problems. I am ashamed to say the country I fought for now trails the rest of the world in working in balance with nature.

Dear Secretary Ryan Zinke,

There is no excuse to not use available technology to recover this methane other than corporate greed at the expense of citizens health. Natural gas needs to be used to replace our coal fired electric power plants. Do the right thing and stop pandering to unethical corporate interests!

I live in the Four Corners area of New Mexico. I support the rules that Obama implemented. There is a gas refinery near my
home in Gallup and every time I go by it is flaring gas. We should be conserving our natural resources instead of flaring and
venting. Let's clean up our air and environment and quit delaying action.

Last year the U.S. became a net exporter of natural gas for the first time since 1957 and it's key that our permitting process, export terminals, and infrastructure are improved to facilitate production of this valuable resources. In addition, Russia continues to use dependence on natural gas by its neighboring countries as a political weapon. Our national security requires that we continue to work to send more LNG to European allies instead of Russian natural gas.
Natural gas is critical to the American economy and to meeting the world's evolving energy and manufacturing needs. Reports project U.S. natural gas demand, including net exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and net exports to Mexico, will increase by more than 30 percent to approximately 105 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) by 2027. Future natural gas infrastructure opportunities will also be driven by greater demand for gas-fired power generation across the country, LNG exports, exports to Mexico, and continued industrial development, particularly in the petrochemical industry. the past bottleneck in the Northeast is removed as pipelines in the Northeast have placed in service, key fundamentals of pipeline strategy taking shape in the Northeast.
Japan remained the world's largest LNG importer in 2017, There was also significant demand from Southern Europe, which imported an additional 10 million tonnes, which was double the forecasts. for the first time, the number of LNG spot cargoes reached more than 1,100, around three cargoes a day. China second as Chinese imports surged past South Korea's. Total demand for LNG in China reached 38 million tonnes, a result of continued economic growth and policies to reduce local air pollution through coal-to-gas switching. significant demand from traditional importers in Asia and Europe. LNG has played an increasing role in the global energy system over the last few decades. LNG provide flexible, reliable and cleaner energy supply for other countries around the world. Asia alone, demand rose by 17 million tonnes. Asia alone, demand rose by 17 million tonnes. natural gas demand is expected to grow at an average of 2% per year; twice the rate of total global energy demand. Demand for LNG is set to increase at an average of 4% per year. Gas is expected to make up over 40% of energy demand growth over the next two decades. government policies focusing on air pollution had a positive impact on gas demand. In China, the 13th Five Year Plan targeted 350-380 billion cubic metres of gas demand by 2020. In South Korea, the 8th Basic Plan for Energy prioritizes renewables and gas, while not sanctioning new nuclear and coal. China alone imported gas - both piped and LNG - from more than 20 countries. number of countries wants USA , they are importing LNG has quadrupled, with LNG trade increasing from 100 million tonnes in 2000 to nearly 300 million tonnes in 2017. the global LNG market size had grown by 29 million tonnes with 45% of planned capacity expansion completed. Gas demand grew by 31 billion cubic metres - up 15% from 2016. LNG buying occurred during winter to help meet strong demand. Gas demand also increased in the industrial sector and in transport, with LNG being used to fuel trucks. In 2017, over 70,000 new LNG fueled trucks were added. 1100 Spot cargoes delivered - 17 % increase over last year

I oppose the proposal to gut the Bureau of Land Managements Methane and Waste Prevention Rule.

Methane waste and pollution is a serious problem on public lands. Leaking, venting, and flaring from natural gas facilities wastes hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer owned natural resources every year. The new proposal eliminates key provisions which protect against exposure to dangerous pollutants and promotes the waste of 299 billion cubic feet of natural gas, enough energy to heat nearly 500,000 homes each year for the next ten years. In addition, your proposal is a huge step backward on the fight to tackle climate change, resulting in the same amount of short-term climate damage as 8.3 million cars driven over ten years.

Rolling back the Methane and Waste Prevention Rule results in a free pass to oil and gas companies to waste American energy and pollute on our public lands. Capturing wasted gas would promote responsible energy production and job growth while safeguarding American health and royalty revenue.

I urge you to halt the effort to gut the rule and instead protect our public lands, health and pocketbooks from methane waste and pollution.

Dear Secretary Ryan Zinke,

I am writing today in strong opposition to BLM's recent proposal to weaken crucial methane waste protections.

Doing so defends the worst actors of the oil & gas industry, and puts their interests above the health and safety of American families and their communities, all while wasting taxpayer dollars. Since 2013, more than $1.7 billion worth of natural gas has been squandered on public and tribal lands.

The best in the business have made it clear that this problem can be fixed using available, low-cost technologies. And the majority of Americans want to see strong protections implemented.

Without public hearings, their voices aren't being heard. Please establish public hearings across the West so that the Americans affected by this proposal can give their input.

And instead of moving forward with this dangerous new proposal, please leave in place the current limits that effectively protected Americans' health, safety, and wallets.

Once again, a shameless grab for profits at the expense of our planet and permanent environmental damage. Secretary Zinke should be ashamed of himself for calling himself a steward of our public lands and call it like it is - at the beck and call of big business and profits to the exclusion of all else.

Among the many recent proposals in regards to resource management, the revision on waste prevention and other requirements ultimately lacks the needed changes to ensure resource conservation and environmental protection.
Amidst revisions to ensure the prevention of further waste secretion major complications are overlooked. While reducing the prevalent waste of natural gas and oil is needed, its secretion will continuously affect the surrounding environment and therefor its inhabitants. As all pipelines are subject to venting, flaring, or leaks, no matter the stringent regulations that might be imposed. Under such revisions and changes projects like the Dakota pipeline may be yet again open for debate. However, such projects have excruciating repercussions and the potential to ruin entire landscapes making it inhabitable for local populations. Further, harmful effects such as seeping oil into ground water can ultimately impact surrounding populations.
Imposing these changes may as well have many repercussions that may not seem so obvious or noticeable in the near future. By expanding the use of natural resources such as fossil fuels we are only contributing to amounting greenhouse gasses and C02 buildup in the atmosphere. Ultimately, we are altering the environment around us and causing rampant ecological issues in the earth system. Many viable alternatives can serve as more sustainable options for future energy demands. Further development of solar, wind, and chemical power may hold such futures. The development and growth of such industries as well have potential to provide ample jobs and economic growth. Such can be seen in the development of solar and its surpassing growth in jobs and industry over coal mining in recent years.
By re-establishing previous rules which the 2016 final rule replaced we are in essence regressing and prohibiting the further development of sustainable energy production rather than encouraging it. Not only does this pose technological/development threats this as well introduces major negative alterations to environmental and resource conservation. Prohibiting the advancement of such proposed rule not only will ensure we do not regress and rewind progress but will as well encourage a brighter, more sustainable, energy efficient future.

In addition, your proposal is a huge step backward on the fight to tackle pollution.

Rolling back the Methane and Waste Prevention Rule results in a free pass to oil and gas companies to waste American energy and pollute on our public lands. Capturing wasted gas would promote responsible energy production and job growth while safeguarding American health and royalty revenue.

I urge you to halt the effort to gut the rule and instead protect our public lands, health and pocketbooks from methane waste and pollution.

I strongly oppose proposed gutting of the Bureau of Land Managements Methane and Waste Prevention Rule.

Methane waste and pollution is a serious problem on public lands. Leaking, venting, and flaring from natural gas facilities wastes hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer owned natural resources every year. The new proposal eliminates key provisions which protect against exposure to dangerous pollutants and promotes the waste of 299 billion cubic feet of natural gas, enough energy to heat nearly 500,000 homes each year for the next ten years. In addition, your proposal is a huge step backward on the fight to tackle climate change, resulting in the same amount of short-term climate damage as 8.3 million cars driven over ten years.

Rolling back the Methane and Waste Prevention Rule results in a free pass to oil and gas companies to waste American energy and pollute on our public lands. Capturing wasted gas would promote responsible energy production and job growth while safeguarding American health and royalty revenue.

I urge you to listen to the majority of Americans and the science, and halt the effort to gut the rule. Instead, protect our public lands, health, and pocketbooks from fossil fuel industry waste and pollution.
