(BLAKE):
"THE NATURAL-GAS- AND OIL-INDUSTRY IS COMMITTED TO THE PROTECTION OF HEALTH, SAFETY, AND THE ENVIRONMENT--FOR ALL AMERICANS.  OUR COMPANIES ARE INVESTED IN THE COMMUNITIES WHERE OUR EMPLOYEES LIVE, WORK, AND RAISE FAMILIES.  OUR INDUSTRY IS SHRINKING ITS ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT:  METHANE-EMISSIONS ARE DOWN 16-PERCENT, SINCE 1990--WHILE NATURAL-GAS PRODUCTION DOUBLED, DURING THE SAME TIME.  GREATER USE OF CLEAN AND ABUNDANT NATURAL-GAS IN POWER-PRODUCTION HAS ALSO IMPROVED AIR-QUALITY--AND HAS BEEN A MAJOR FACTOR IN REDUCING ECONOMY-WIDE CARBON-DIOXIDE EMISSIONS TO THEIR LOWEST LEVELS IN NEARLY 25 YEARS.  OUR MOTOR-FUELS ARE ALSO CLEANER:  WE HAVE ELIMINATED LEAD, AND REDUCED SULFUR BY MORE THAN 90-PERCENT--ACCORDING TO THE E-P-A.  REFINERIES HAVE SPENT HUNDREDS-OF-MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, TO REDUCE THEIR EMISSIONS TO A LEVEL THAT THE E-P-A HAS DETERMINED TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC.  OUR INDUSTRY IS LEADING ON THE ENVIRONMENT; SUPPORTING MILLIONS OF WELL-PAYING JOBS; AND PROVIDING MILLIONS OF AMERICAN FAMILIES WITH AFFORDABLE AND RELIABLE ENERGY.  THE 'ENERGY RENAISSANCE' HAS BROUGHT SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS--INCLUDING HEALTH-BENEFITS--TO ALL AMERICANS."
