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.

On Saturday, our latest tranche of methane pollution evidence went live. We found methane leaking or venting from dozens of oil & gas facilities in the UK.

A quick 🧵on what this means for #COP26

...#CutMethane #CutMethaneEU

Thank you, @MariaSpyraki and colleagues, for leading the way on efforts to rein in methane pollution. #CutMethane #COP26 #CutMethaneEU https://www.reuters.com/business/environment/eu-parliament-seeks-legal-clampdown-planet-warming-methane-emissions-2021-10-21/

Fantastic to see such leadership from the @EUparliament. It sends a powerful signal to world leaders ahead of #COP26.

Cutting methane pollution is THE fastest way to slow global warming.

#CutMethaneEU

#EPlenary just adopted the #methane strategy report by 563 votes, calling for ambitious measures on LDAR, venting and flaring, imports, and for an international agreement at the #COP26. Great work by @MariaSpyraki, @mhojsik, @mrossemp & @JuttaPaulusRLP !

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

This guy really wanted to join us on the methane tour through Romania last month, but he decided to stay behind. #dogsofromania

Another photo denied by @gettyimages. If I turned the “filter” of you wouldn’t see the methane pollution. Swipe to the next shot to see the digital photo. #nofilter #opticalgasimaging #cutmethaneeu

Hahahahah. I submitted this photo to @gettyimages because I keep seeing news articles about methane emissions showing coal plants! Getty declined it, saying I need to remove the filter. @flir, thoughts? #nofliter 🤣🤣🤣

I definitely enjoy days in the field more than days in front of the computer. The views are (almost) always better, even if all the emissions I’m documenting are so depressing.

A lot of Austrians I talk to don’t realize they have oil and gas wells. Some of these sites have spectacular views. #osterreich #cutmethaneeu
