What Wyoming Court Decision Deregulating Methane Venting and Flaring Means For The Atmosphere
In this episode of This Green Earth it's all about the greenhouse gases: methane and carbon dioxide. Last week, a Wyoming District Judge struck down a rule regulating the practice of venting and flaring methane natural gas from oil and natural gas extraction systems. The decision now allows the fossil fuel industry to emit methane, unmonitored and unregulated, into the earth’s atmosphere. Jason O'Neil with the non-profit Accountable U.S. talks more about this decision.
