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.

This is what #fossilfuel reliance looks like: a huge #methane leak bubbling in our seas.

We need:
👉 strong methane leak detection & repair and ⛔️bans on venting and flaring
👉 a shift to #renewables and #EnergyEfficiency

#CutMethaneEU

For the launch of the #MethaneWeek at the European Parliament, EIA Senior Lawyer Tim Grabiel is now participating to a panel to highlight the shortcomings of the EU Methane Regulation, particularly on the need to address imports.

#CutMethaneEU

Happening now for #MethaneWeek: CATF's @jamesturitto talks about the need for stronger regulations to #CutMethaneEU at @Europarl_EN,
hosted by @JuttaPaulusRLP, with @CANEurope, @Umwelthilfe, and @EIA_News ...https://www.eventbrite.be/e/methane-week-vernissage-and-discussions-tickets-420363968947

Happening now: @CAN_Europe panel discussion:

🤔What are the shortcomings of the Commission's proposal for methane regulation?

🤔 What is the current state with methane leaks, detection and repair governance in Germany?

#MethaneWeek

🔴"#Methane action cannot wait", said our Senior Scientist Daniel Zavala-Araiza just now @Europarl_EN.

Let's #CutMethaneEU, now.

@JuttaPaulusRLP @ESA_EO @FredSimonEU @GreensEFA @CANEurope

#MethaneWeek is about making the invisible visible👇
📌Revealing #methane emissions captured by @cleanaircatf at #gas infrastructure assets
📌 Showing that we have the technology to address methane emissions

#CutMethaneEU

To reach energy security the🇪🇺 needs to adopt a renewable energy system.
🔧Until we ditch #fossilfuels for good, stopping methane emissions with leak detection & repair & BANNING VENTING & FLARING can increase efficiency & reduce dependency on fossil gas imports.

We visited a tourist trail in an old oil field in Spain - guess what we found?

#CutMethaneEU

On this abandoned site n°20 on the trail, you can see bubbles with gas in this well filled with rainwater. #CutMethaneEU

This summer, CATF and @ecologistas went hunting for #methane in #Spain, documenting methane emissions from abandoned oil wells that make up the oil trail of Sargentes de la Lora. #CutMethaneEU

Our partners at @Legambiente are currently on a roadshow in #Italy, highlighting the climate impacts of #methane pollution and pushing for ambitious rules and regulations 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.
