Methane is
an unseen

CLIMATE DISASTER

Methane emissions from oil and gas are tied for Europe’s third largest source of greenhouse gases – and that’s just the emissions that we’re being told about. Methane has been ignored and under-regulated for years, but anytime someone looks, we find more than what is officially reported. The true impact of methane is likely much, much bigger than we suspect.

In the short term, methane emissions are about 80x more damaging than CO2. If we don’t act now, even the most aggressive CO2 reductions won’t save us from calamitous climate repercussions.

Smart policies can reduce  European methane emissions by 70% by 2025. We already have the know-how and technology to implement this – we just need the political will to make it happen.

REMINDER: "Most energy sector methane emissions could be captured at zero or very low cost. As a major importer of fossil fuels, Europe should lead by example."

Former European Commissioner for Energy, @APiebalgs, joins the call to #CutMethaneEU ⬇️

#RT @FredKrupp: RT @wallacemick: The #EU imports over 90% of its gas and 97% of its oil. If the #MethaneRegulation does not apply equally to imports, it will be as good as useless @EnvDefenseEuro #CutMethaneEU

💬 @tommasimoni "Necessarie a livello europeo norme stringenti ed efficaci per ridurre le emissioni di metano lungo tutta la filiera del #gas naturale"

🤝 Prosegue il nostro impegno insieme a @EnvDefenseEuro sul contrasto alle emissioni di metano nella campagna #CutMethaneEU

What can the EU do to cut #methane emissions in the oil & gas sector? @ChristianLelon5, Director, Climate Solutions @Kayrros, calls for better data, transparency & reporting to #CutMethaneEU today.

In the fight against climate change, cutting #methane emissions in the oil & gas sector should be a policy priority.

Swipe for why we need to #CutMethaneEU 👇

I was standing in the middle of the field scratching my head. What am I looking at, I thought. Is that a ruptured pipeline? Yup, it sure was. I told the company right away.

My trip to Italy could not have ended on a more somber note. After more than a week documenting methane emissions across the country, I came across this wildfire raging in the hillsides less than 30 minutes outside of Rome. Smoke filled the valley as we drove down the highway.

We need to ...drastically and quickly cut the amount of methane entering the atmosphere. #romeisburning #cutmethane
