Methane Emissions and Devastating Floods
19 mins listen July 23, 2021
In the world of climate mitigative energy sources, natural gas lives in an uneasy balance. It is viewed by some as a bridge from heavy polluting fossil fuels to lower-emission sources, while others see it as a much more pollutive source than advertised. This is because of the issue of flaring, venting, and fugitive methane emissions along the natural gas supply chain. We discuss the new regulations that are coming to prevent methane emissions that are likely to impact oil and gas companies, and the attempts by some companies to make carbon neutral natural gas sources. Then we discuss the two devastating floods in Germany and China, and what it means for our world’s critical infrastructure.
