California Governor Is Big on Talk, Weak on Climate Action | EcoWatch
When it comes to fighting pollution, global warming and our climate crisis, California Gov. Jerry Brown is big on talk and weak on action. Gov. Brown frequently warns us that climate change is a major threat we must solve, citing the ongoing ...
Defects in fracked oil
and gas wells in Pennsylvania are leading to methane leaks in shale
wells throughout the state -- greenhouse gas emissions that could exacerbate climate change, according to a Cornell University study published ...
The British Geological Survey (BGS) has estimated 80 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of shale
gas is beneath the Midland Valley of Scotland, a much lower amount than what is said to be elsewhere in the UK, with green groups saying Scotland should not ...
Environmentalists on Monday protested at the headquarters of the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, calling on the agency to stop approving liquefied natural gas export facilities until the climate change impacts of the projects are ...
A study of derelict Pennsylvania oil
and gas wells has spotted what is possibly a huge source of additional greenhouse gas emissions.
Methane, which is pound-for-pound a much more potent climate-warming gas than carbon
dioxide, could be ...
A study of abandoned oil
and gas wells in Pennsylvania finds that the hundreds of thousands of such wells in the state may be leaking methane, suggesting that abandoned wells across the country could be a bigger source of climate changing ...
Coal dominated world energy markets last year by supplying the biggest share of demand since 1970, making it the fastest growing fossil fuel, according to an annual review by BP Plc.
Consumption grew 3 percent last year, driven by coal ...
Visitors to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science can stand beside an enormous rotating drill bit, take a virtual ride down a fracking well and run their fingers along the smooth, dark surface of the Barnett Shale
, the natural gas-rich rock that ...
The public debate over climate-change agents has focused recently on coal, shale oil
and fracked natural gas - fossil fuels, all. Vermonters might draw vague solace from knowing that these disputed resources, and the key battles being waged over ...
A Princeton University study has found that leaks from abandoned oil
and gas wellbores pose not only a risk to groundwater, but represent a growing threat to the climate.
Between 200,000 and 970,000 abandoned wells in the state of ...
North Carolina could soon be deluged with cheap and abundant natural gas from the Marcellus Shale
through a major pipeline expansion that could dampen urgency to incubate a home-grown fracking industry.
Proposals to build a new ...
Environmentalists have bitterly condemned a new EU research fund which invites shale
gas firms to apply for EUR113m (£90m) of subsidies, under a programme designed to encourage ‘competitive low carbon
The Horizon 2020 research ...
Up to 10 per cent of B.C. natural gas wells are leaking and some have become “super-emitters” of methane, which is an environmental and health concern, says a new report.
Wells can leak from their drill holes as gas can travel along gaps ...
Though the president and federal Environmental Protection Agency are on the brink of issuing new rules for existing coal-fired power plants, a Cornell University professor says natural gas deserves a bit of attention, too.
Robert Howarth ...
Fossil fuel transportation by rail, already beleaguered by a series of disasters, could actually see things get worse thanks to the very climate change it`s helping to drive: as temperatures increase, rail tracks are more likely to warp, leading ...
The government's consultation on the rights of fracking companies to drill under your home was published the day after the local and European elections, hours after the polls closed. Perhaps that was a wise move given that public support for ...
No longer dominated by the traditional “Big Green” groups that were taking big donations from corporate polluters, the new environmental movement is broader, more assertive and more creative. With extreme energy extraction and climate change ...
Next month, the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) will publish a new estimate of US shale
deposits set to deal a death-blow to industry hype about a new golden era of US energy independence by fracking unconventional oil
For Lou Hancherick, who lives in the countryside amid picturesque hillside vistas and gas wells 30 miles north of Pittsburgh, the dangers of fracking came clear when the water didn’t.Eighty miles to the south, Pam Judy turned against ...
A Cornell University scientist's claims that oil
and gas development is so harmful to the climate that methane emissions and oil
and gas production in general need to be cut back immediately to avoid a "global catastrophe" are adding more fuel to ...
As the shale
gas boom continues, the atmosphere receives more methane, adding to Earth`s greenhouse gas problem. Robert Howarth, greenhouse gas expert and ecology and environmental biology professor, fears that we may not be many years away from ...
