What to do about methane: The Climate Minute

Methane (AKA natural gas) is a super greenhouse gas. The myriad leaks in pipes from wellhead to your home demand immediate attention. Listen to an expert describe what we can do about methane. Spoiler alert: we can reduce the leaks by 65% by 2025!

The reading list:

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.

Thanks for listening.

    Do I remember correctly that the host has a physics background? I suggest, if he wants to be serious about it, that he think about the methane-meat production connection as a conservation problem. Presumably he doesn’t believe that ruminants have fusion reactors which are creating carbon, so why does he think that meat production generates more methane than would be the case if people ate the plants now fed to animals? for that matter, if no one ate these plants, but they were harrowed up and left to rot?

    The point here, even absent competing evidence that the nutrition from plant-based food is inferior, calorie for calorie replacement of plants by animals is, at the least, not an obvious benefit.
