Methane Emissions

25 Jul

President Joe Biden has recently signed a bill repealing a rule that rolled back regulations on methane emissions in the United States. Two important rules have been reinstated which have set stricter limits on the amount of methane that the country’s oil and gas industry can emit from their drilling sites [1]. This act plays a significant role in the effort to curb methane emissions and is considered a major step in the fight against climate change.

US congresswoman DeGette also introduced another piece of legislation known as the “Methane Waste Prevention Act of 2021” that would set more stringent limits on methane emissions from the oil and gas industry. If approved, US oil and gas producers would have to cut down their methane emissions by at least 65% by 2025, and by at least 90% from their 2012 emissions by 2030 [2].

It is quite evident that the movement of reducing greenhouse gas emissions worldwide is getting stronger, as more governments and private organizations are starting to act in the fight against climate change.
