How each country’s share of global CO2 emissions changes over time
Three economies contributed more than half of the world’s CO2 emissions in 2016 – but half a century ago the picture looked very different.
How The EPA Plans To Cut Methane Emissions From Oil And Gas Wells
Regulating carbon dioxide, by far the most common greenhouse gas, is critical to halt the emissions that cause climate change. But methane is a very close second, and for the first time, the federal government is moving to significantly rein in methane pollution The Obama administration released a proposed rule Tuesday to regulate methane emissions from new and modified oil and gas wells across the country…
Digital technology can cut global emissions by 15%. Here’s how
A new report argues that the digital technology sector is probably the world’s most powerful influencer for accelerating effective climate action. Here's how it might work.
Oceans absorb almost a third of global CO2 emissions, but at what cost?
The effects of climate change would be even worse if it weren't for the oceans, but there's a limit to how much carbon they can absorb.
Fossil fuel methane emissions are twice what is being reported
The fossil-fuel industry has been massively underestimating its methane emissions, but they’re not behind a recent global spike in these emissions

The Canadian government needs to resist intense lobbying by oil and gas companies and regulate methane emissions now.
Opinion: Curbing methane emissions packs a punch so why are we waiting?
A recent study by the Canadian Energy Research Institute (CERI) shows that many methane-reduction opportunities in the oil and gas sector are practical, available and cost-effective. In many cases,…
Global Agricultural Transition Under Way to Boost Resilience to Climate Change and Reduce...
Governments and food and agriculture organizations join today at the LPAA Focus on Agriculture to respond to the urgent climate challenges facing agriculture with six cooperative initiatives that will protect the long-term livelihoods of millions of farmer and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The event was held in the context of the Lima-Paris Action Agenda during Paris COP21.
Climate change: Why are global methane levels spiking?
An increase in methane, a much more potent gas than carbon dioxide, could make efforts to reduce climate change more difficult.

EPA plans to end methane emission rules that oil companies want to keep
The Trump administration is readying a plan to end direct federal regulation of methane leaks from oil and gas facilities, even as some energy companies insist they don’t want the relief.
Why methane emissions matter to climate change: 5 questions answered
While methane poses the greatest threat to the climate because of its greenhouse gas potency, the other hydrocarbons present in the natural gas can degrade regional air quality and harm human health.
Report: Methane emissions up 20 percent at Pennsylvania natural gas sites
PennFuture says new data being self-reported by the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania show a 20 percent increase in methane, which is a byproduct of flaring and venting that occur during natural gas production. The data are for the years 2014 and 2015.
