New Rule to Curb Methane Releases on Public Lands?

The proposed rule will tackle methane emissions and bring federal regulations in line with technological advances, while providing a fair return to taxpayers, according to yesterday’s news release.

Private-sector activity is “wasting valuable publicly owned resources that could be put to productive use, and depriving American taxpayers, Tribes, and States of substantial royalty revenues,” as explained on page 14 of the pdf.

Worse, methane is a greenhouse gas that contributes to man-made climate change.

Sounds great.  The BLM is finally cracking down on public-lands ranching?

Nope, the focus is oil and gas production, which can only drive up the cost of domestic energy and everything derived therefrom.

Were you expecting something different from liberals?
