Episode Info:

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are released along with methane during oil and gas operations and contribute to local and regional ozone formation. Lesley Fleischman, Senior Analyst with Clean Air Task Force, explains how venting and leaking VOCs can impact lung health and respiratory function. She encourages NGOs to educate themselves and push for tighter methane and VOC regulations at the state and federal levels. Note: an earlier version of this podcast incorrectly put the number of facilities at 12 million. The current podcast has the correct number at 1.3 million.
