Methane emitted by humans vastly underestimated, researchers find

University of Rochester Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas and large contributor to global warming. Methane emissions to the atmosphere have increased by approximately 150 percent over the past three centuries, but it has been difficult for researchers to determine exactly where these emissions originate; heat-trapping gases like methane can be emitted naturally, as well…

Facts About Methane Ignored to Support Climate Narrative

Guest essay by By Walter Starck Science is, above all, a search for understanding based on a primacy of reason and evidence, with all findings subject to revision in accord with further evidence or more comprehensive explanation. The highest achievement in science is to discover a new or better understanding that can extend or replace…

Offshore Oil and Gas Production Leaks Virtually No Methane

Guest zero-point-zero by David Middleton Offshore oil and gas rigs leak more greenhouse gas than expectedJohn Sullivan, Office of Engineering CommunicationsAug. 15, 2019 9:49 a.m. A survey of offshore installations extracting oil and natural gas in the North Sea revealed far more leakage of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, than currently estimated by the British…

Curiosity Detects Unusually High Methane Levels

From NASA June 23, 2019 This week, NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover found a surprising result: the largest amount of methane ever measured during the mission — about 21 parts per billion units by volume (ppbv). One ppbv means that if you take a volume of air on Mars, one billionth of the volume of air…

Study: Cattle Methane is a moooot point in global climate

Via No Tricks Zone: Agrobiologist and scientific researcher Dr. Albrecht Glatzle, author of over 100 scientific papers and two textbooks, has published research that shows: “…there is no scientific evidence, whatsoever, that domestic livestock could represent a risk for the Earth’s climate” and the “warming potential of anthropogenic GHG [greenhouse gas] emissions has been exaggerated.” Glatzle, 2018…

Stanford Researchers: Save the climate by turning methane into carbon dioxide!!!

Guest no schist Sherlock by David Middleton Stanford News Service MAY 20, 2019Stanford researchers outline vision for profitable climate change solution A seemingly counterintuitive approach – converting one greenhouse gas into another – holds promise for returning the atmosphere to pre-industrial concentrations of methane, a powerful driver of global warming. BY ROB JORDAN Stanford Woods…

Methane warming exaggerated by 400%

By Barry Brill The IPCC’s AR5 estimated the global warming caused by a tonne of livestock methane would be 28 times that of a tonne of carbon dioxide. New research destroys that estimate. The war on meat has been gathering pace amongst our Western elites. The Economist makes a detailed case for “plant-based food” in…
