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 […]

In Bangor Daily News: Maine’s congressional delegation can lead on climate change and election integrity

The president is expected to sign into law the Inflation Reduction Act that includes massive support for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but the planet is warming so fast that we must find ways not just to add less pollution but to remove vast amounts of the most powerful greenhouse gases, like methane, to be able […]

Catalogue 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 […]

VIDEO: Mitigating climate disruption in time: A self-consistent approach for avoiding both near-term and long-term global warming

Dr Gabrielle Dreyfus and Durwood Zaelke of Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development (IGSD) present the concepts and findings discussed in the paper “Mitigating climate disruption in time: A self-consistent approach for avoiding both near-term and long-term global warming”. The case is made that preventing the worst of climate disruption has two aspects: 1) decarbonization, […]

VIDEO: How Best to Reduce Methane: A New York State Example

Bob Howarth, Phd of Cornell University discusses the importance of methane emissions reduction in relation to New York State’s goal of converting to 100% renewable energy sources by 2050. Professor Howarth emphasizes why “natural gas” is not a “bridge fuel to the future” and why it is important to phase out methane as opposed to […]
