Visuals of Methane Leaks December 16 2019, 0 Comments

The New York Times posted an interactive video using a highly specialized infrared camera that shows methane escaping from the DCP Pegasus gas processing plant in West Texas.

Although not seen by the naked eye, immense amounts of methane gas are escaping from oil and gas sites nationwide and the Trump administration plans to weaken restrictions on offenders, even though the emissions, vastly underreported, are worsening global warming.

Speaking of gas leaks, the Times Union reported that in Albany workers and National Grid crews spent three hours Thursday trying to seal a massive gas leak that shut down parts of two main roads in the city and forced hundreds of workers to temporarily evacuate.
