Catastrophic Ohio Methane Leak Stayed Hidden Until a Satellite Found It

Recent news story: "A blowout in Ohio made little news in 2018, but satellite images show it was a major global event. A little-noticed 2018 methane leak at an Exxon Mobil site in Ohio was one of the worst in recent memory, outpacing the methane emissions from the entire oil and gas industries of many countries. The blown well was pumping 132 tons (120 metric tons) of methane into the atmosphere every hour, give or take 35 tons (32 metric tons). That's nearly double the rate of a much more…See More

Climate ChangedBatteries and Gas: Frenemies of the Power World Face Off"It was only three years ago that natural gas overtook coal to become king of America’s power mix, and its throne is already being challenged -- by batteries.As battery costs fall, solar farms are increasingly installing storage systems, allowing them to sock away cheap electricity by day and pump it onto grids at night. Solar-storage projects are already cheaper than gas plants to build in the U.S. Southwest. And that’s…See More

If an injection well leaks into an aquifer that's a mistake that the operator and the regulators missed. This sort of thing happens frequently with underground gasoline tanks, yet nobody asks for a moratorium on driving our cars. The difference is that any political moves that inappropriately slow down the development of natural gas will mean that more coal gets burned thus contributing to global warming in a way that no impartial research suggests natural gas can match. Not to belabor the point, but an old friend who is in upper management at a large conservancy has told me he considers the anti-gas movement "the biggest threat to the global environment" at present. But he can't say this publicly because they all depend on donations and are aware of what happened to the Wilderness Society when they tried to tell people the straight story. So if you love the environment like I do, you really ought to do a little more research before calling for drilling moratoriums.
