In The Hill: Climate Week congregants should address methane

Smoke and steam billowing from and oil refinery smoke stack with The Hill logo superimposed.

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?

A large body of water in Alaska with some ice in the foreground under which one can see methane bubbles.

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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

An aerial view of a polluted city.

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

A bridge that has collapsed. It goes out over the water and the stops.

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 […]
