    •  Jared Polis' BREATHE Act, co-sponsored by (0+ / 0-)

      60 progressive Democrats, causes a nationwide deregulation of hydrogen sulfide emission limitations....some of which have been in effect for the last 40 years...across all industry sectors.

      HR 1154 is the worst idea ever proposed by national environmental groups to amend the Clean Air Act in the 44 years since the first 1970 enactment of the Act by Senator Edmund Muskie.

      The promotion of the BREATHE Act is part of the Gasland conflation/fabrication bubble.   The BREATHE Act is part of a marketing campaign by environmental organizations started years ago to manufacture a meme claiming that the oil and gas industry (and hydraulic fracturing) are exempt from the Clean Air Act -- a direct claim of the movie Gasland.

      In pursuing this organized lying campaign, groups like the Sierra Club under Michael Brune and Earthworks have actually manufactured a marketing campaign whose objective damages air pollution control for hydrogen sulfide, damages public health, trashes the public trust in the Clean Air Act and the atmosphere and deliberately lies to the public about the entire matter.
