Oil and gas firms 'have had far worse climate impact than thought' | Environment | The Guardian

Oil and gas firms 'have had far worse climate impact than thought' | Environment | The Guardian | Agents of Behemoth | Scoop.it

The oil and gas industry has had a far worse impact on the climate than previously believed, according to a study indicating that human emissions of fossil methane have been underestimated by up to 40%.

The Swarm's insight:

“This indicates that the fossil fuel sector has a much more polluting impact beyond being responsible for the overwhelming majority of carbon dioxide emissions. This is worrying and overall bad news,” said Dr Joeri Rogelj, a climate change lecturer at the Grantham Institute.
