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 fixing leaks in production and distribution systems. Also discussed are the drawbacks to “grey” and “blue” hydrogen (hydrogen derived from natural gas).
