[Calabasas, California – November 1] The NGO Methane Action, which works to address the methane emergency and avoid 0.6 degrees of global warming by reversing the buildup of record-high atmospheric methane, is delighted to announce that two new, distinguished climate leaders have joined its board of advisors: Sophie Gallois and Solomon Goldstein-Rose

Methane Action’s mission is to pursue the science and policy advances needed, under careful global governance, to rapidly restore atmospheric concentrations of methane to pre-industrial levels for the benefit of present and future generations. Leading scientists, policymakers, and civil society organizations are joining Methane Action’s call to cut methane emissions deeply and accelerate research, development, and governance for methane removal technologies.

 “We feel incredibly lucky to have Sophie’s and Solomon’s expertise and leadership on our board of advisors,” said Daphne Wysham, CEO of Methane Action. “They have unique insights into accelerating and scaling climate innovations like methane removal, and how to communicate about them effectively.  Both skillsets are mission-critical for Methane Action’s work.”

Sophie Gallois is CEO and co-founder of The Climate Agency, a London-based non-profit marketing strategy consultancy dedicated to helping climate innovators scale up. She also serves as a trustee and advisor for several carbon removal NGOs. Her prior career spans leadership positions both in the corporate world and with charities such as Unicef UK. “Methane is a huge issue and an area where we need to shine an urgent spotlight,” she said.  “I am proud to support the work of Methane Action any way that I can.”

Solomon Goldstein-Rose is the author of The 100% Solution: A Plan for Solving Climate Change. He has an engineering background and recently gave a TED Talk on scaling clean electricity.  A climate activist since age 11, at age 22 he ran on a climate action platform and was elected to the Massachusetts State Legislature, where he passed several climate and energy initiatives. In 2018 he decided to leave the Legislature to work full-time on climate change at the national and global levels. He now runs Virya, LLC, an impact investing project to accelerate underfunded climate technologies.  

Gallois and Goldstein-Rose join current MA advisory board members Peter Jenkins, Senior Counsel at Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility and the chair of MA’s advisory board; Sara Radcliffe, the board’s vice chair; Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., President and Founder of the Hip Hop Caucus; Heather McGeory of APCO Impact; Dr. Rob Jackson of Stanford University; and Durwood Zaelke, founder and President of the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development.
