NOAA: Methane Emissions ‘Being Driven by Natural and Agricultural Emissions, Not Fossil Fuels’

Last year, EID highlighted the fact that several recent peer-reviewed studies have concluded microbial sources of methane such as wetlands, agriculture and rice paddies are responsible for the increase in global emissions since 2007 — not oil and natural gas production.

To meet climate goals, California should produce more oil, not less

It is often forgotten that California has a robust, century-old oil and gas industry that has helped power the state’s rise into a cultural and economic superpower, all while operating under the strictest environmental regulations in the nation.
