This joint session with JEA focuses on how Methane emissions from the oil and gas industry threaten the climate and waste natural resources. For over a decade, the Environmental Defense Fund has researched O&G methane emissions and advocated for strong regulations and other solutions to reduce emissions. John Rutecki and David Lyon from EDF provide an overview of EPA’s proposed methane rule that would regulate hundreds of thousands of existing sites, plus a summary of EDF’s recent research into the detection, quantification, and mitigation of emissions.
