From a regular reader.
Venting of methane from a CHK well site in Booger County.
There are no controls or regulations to prevent such venting in Texas.
Does wonders for global warming to pump that methane into the atmosphere. Methane is 20 times more powerful as a GHG than CO2. Venting puts public health and safety at risk because it releases a lot of dangerous chemicals into the air.
