[The following is a letter to the editor written by Methane Action board member Peter Jenkins that appeared here in the Washington Post on July 7, 2021.] The July 1 editorial “Melting in the Pacific Northwest” was right to glimpse a dystopian future in the current heat wave. It’s true that greenhouse gases already emitted, also known […]

Expert Scientists Available for Comment on Lake Kivu Crisis

Billowing fire and smoke rises from Lake Kivu, caused by methane erupting from the bottom of the lake.

The threat of large methane and carbon dioxide releases from the lake is due to a rare seismic phenomenon, but it’s also part of a broader, growing threat of acute releases in the Arctic and elsewhere for which we need to be better prepared. What? A volcanic eruption on the tectonic divide of the East […]

In ScienceDirect: A nature-based negative emissions technology able to remove atmospheric methane and other greenhouse gases

Abstract Fulfilling the Paris Climate Agreement requires reducing rapidly the new emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to reach net zero by 2050. As some anthropogenic emissions cannot be zero, to compensate them it will be necessary to remove GHGs from the atmosphere. Among possible methods, the Iron Salt Aerosol (ISA) offers new possibilities, including removal […]

BY ROB JACKSON AND DAPHNE WYSHAM When world leaders convened at the climate summit, carbon dioxide (CO2) wasn’t the only climate pollutant on the agenda. They also grappled with methane. Methane accounts for 16 percent of all global greenhouse gas emissions, yet it’s one of the most powerful levers for fighting climate change. We’re unlikely to […]
