Tackling Climate Change: Addressing Methane Pollution
October 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm CDT
Greater Fort Worth Sierra Club: Tackling Climate Change: Addressing Methane Pollution and Natural Gas Flaring in Texas
Join Emma Pabst with Environment Texas on a journey to and from Texas’ oil and gas fields, where dangerous chemicals are pumped out of the ground, into the air, and shipped through vast networks of pipelines to fuel polluting petrochemical facilities across the state.
We’ll take a deep dive into the natural gas being produced in Tarrant county and the Permian Basin, exploring why it’s dangerous, and what we can do about it.
Emma graduated from the University of Texas at Austin where she earned a BA in African Diaspora Studies and a minor in Rhetoric with a focus on environmental racism. Emma leads Environment Texas’ global warming campaigns, including their work to reduce climate pollution from oil and gas drilling in Texas. Currently, she’s working to take on flaring and venting in the state, as well as pressuring University of Texas and Texas A&M to reduce methane emissions on university-owned land.
FortWorth SierraClub is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
