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.

The #CutMethaneEU message spreads to Hungary!

A #metánszivárgás hazánkban is jelentősebb lehet a hivatalosan jelentettnél. Legyen a valós szivárgás beleszámítva a földgáz kibocsátásai közé és 🇭🇺 is csatlakozzon a Globális Metánvállalás-hoz!

Thanks to the @AmbasciataUSA and @centrostudiusa for putting together an excellent event on #methane today. Great to talk with @mnfrdcltgrn and others about how Italy can be a global leader. #CutMethaneEU #GlobalMethanePledge

"We must move beyond pledges and commitments and towards action."

CATF's @jamesturitto discussed actions #Italy could take now to #CutMethane from its oil and gas sector at a #GlobalMethanePledge event today at @AmbasciataUSA.

The @IEA estimates: over 7⃣0⃣% #methane emissions from oil and gas operations are technically feasible to prevent, 45% at no net cost. To #CutMethaneEU we need an ambitious #MethaneRegulation: binding reduction target&covering gas import @EUCouncil @moskwa_anna @KadriSimson 🇪🇺 🌍

The EU needs to address #methane emissions with more ambitious and binding regulations! 🇪🇺 Emissions embodied in oil & gas imports into the EU should be covered as well #CutMethaneEU @EUCouncil @moskwa_anna @KadriSimson

🛑 Cut methane leaks NOW, while accelerating the PHASE-OUT of #fossilfuels & STOPPING new fossil fuel infrastructure!

🚨 We cannot afford a weak #MethaneRegulation,
@EUCouncil!

#CutMethaneEU #BeyondGas #EnergyCouncil

Cut methane on the whole supply chain! The 🇪🇺 can’t address its #methane problem without tackling imports. We need to extend the framework to all #fossil #gas consumed in the EU NOW! #CutMethaneEU!!! @EUCouncil @moskwa_anna @KadriSimson 🌍

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
