Catalog of Research Funding Needs to Advance Methane Removal

In complement to anthropogenic methane emissions reductions, atmospheric methane removal has been proposed in order to: address methane sources difficult to prevent or avoid, deal with legacy emissions, remove increasing emissions from wetlands and water bodies induced by anthropogenic global warming, and prepare in case of a methane burst (rapidly thawing permafrost and catastrophic releases […]

First-Ever Environmental Impact Study for a Methane Removal Approach Published in the Journal Sustainability

Methane Action announced publication of a first-ever environmental impact modeling study of the potential methane removal technique known as Enhanced Atmospheric Methane Oxidation (EAMO).  EAMO aims at oxidizing methane in the atmosphere and could potentially be used to lower dangerously high and rapidly rising methane levels.  The study was published in the peer-reviewed science journal […]

In The Hill: COP27: A global methane agreement can prevent climate catastrophe

As important as decarbonization will be post-2050, it is essential to couple it with a strategy to immediately cut methane and the other short-lived super climate pollutants, as this can avoid four times more warming at mid-century than decarbonization alone can…. 40 to 50 percent of methane emissions are from natural sources, including tropical wetlands, peatlands and Arctic […]

In The Wall Street Journal: Methane Spaghetti

Reducing methane emissions now could help avoid a surge in methane emissions in the future….Daphne Wysham, chief executive of Methane Action, an nonprofit group, said the Global Methane Pledge is welcome but insufficient, noting that a U.N. report published before the pledge was signed called for a 45% emissions reduction by 2030….“There’s a recognition that […]

In The Hill: Climate Week congregants should address methane

In addition to climate reparations, the developed world also needs to put resources into climate restoration, so loss and damage don’t keep compounding beyond all possible compensation. Methane should be a primary focus of that effort. Given its outsized warming effect and its skyrocketing accumulation in the atmosphere, it’s the most powerful lever we have […]

In Financial Times: Methane hunters: what explains the surge in the potent greenhouse gas?

If the warming Earth is already starting to release more methane, then this vicious cycle — in which warming triggers more warming — could become self-perpetuating. Although that moment could still be decades in the future, once that tipping point is reached, it will be very hard to reverse. Anticipating this, some groups are starting […]
