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 […]

Testimony on Methane Removal to Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs

Last year, the world-renowned former science advisor to the U.K., Sir David King of Cambridge University, declared we have five years left to solve the climate crisis and announced a new Climate Crisis Advisory Group to help reduce emissions, remove greenhouse gases already emitted and restore the climate to truly healthy temperatures and functioning. Read […]

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 […]

In Wired: It Might Be Time to Take Methane Removal Seriously

Jackson and other scientists suggest it’s time to think about removing methane from the atmosphere, in addition to cutting back on new emissions…. [They] have argued that the heating effects of methane are chronically undervalued, because current climate policies emphasize long-term temperature goals that extend far beyond the lifetime of a methane molecule. The value […]
