Call your representative and senators every day. Here's how.

By | Margie Alt
Executive Director, Environment America

There’s a lot unfolding in Washington, D.C., right now, and you may be wondering: “What can I do to voice my concerns?”

Environment Texas is hosting an art contest for our campaign:  “Methane: UT’s dirty little secret.” The University of Texas is involved in the one of the largest oil and gas operations in America. The drilling operations pollute huge amounts of methane, which is harming our planet.  UT doesn’t require companies who lease its land to use available technology to cut methane pollution. We’re calling on UT to require the companies that drill on UT owned land to cut methane emissions in half in the next five years.

On behalf of Environment Texas and the University of Texas Student Government, we are writing to provide a brief update and request a meeting so we can discuss methane emissions from oil and gas facilities overseen by University Lands and the disappointing stance taken by UL administration.

Testimony on pollinators and pesticides

By | Luke Metzger
Director

Today I testified before the Texas Senate Natural Resources Committee about pollinator protection. Here's my testimony: Hello, my name is Luke Metzger and I am the Director of Environment Texas, a non-profit advocate for clean air, clean water and open spaces. I’m here to talk about the important role that pollinators play in our ecosystems, our food supply and our economy and to talk about the risks facing them.
