EPA Global initiative to cut methane and other GHG.
Countries to fight climate change while developing clean energy and stronger economies
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Mexico’s Ministry of Environment along with thirty-six other countries, the European Commission, the Asian Development Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank launched a new Global Methane Initiative that urges stronger international action to address near-term climate change. The initiative expands on existing global efforts to reduce emissions of methane, a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change, while providing significant clean energy, human health, environmental and economic benefits. EPA Assistant Administrator for the Office of Air and Radiation, Gina McCarthy, represented the agency at the meetings that took place September 30 and October 1 in Mexico City.

This is so related-got 4 minutes to watch? "No pressure really".
Watching this video will only make it go more viral. I suggest we write to YouTube and demand they remove this video. My friend in Arkansas took a video of a waste hauler admitting he was dumping drilling waste and Big Gas pressured YouTube until they took it down.

The amount of "lost unaccounted for" (LUF) gas is rather staggering. And, LUF is allowed in all steps of gas production & use, from the well to the distribution line.

Oops! It's "lost and unaccounted for gas ("LUGs")!
