B.C.’s best bet for cutting climate pollution
We have a short window to get the B.C. government to enact one of the cheapest, fastest and most effective climate solutions available.
Send your message now to cut methane pollution from B.C.’s biggest industrial carbon polluter: the oil and gas sector.
Methane is 84 times more powerful than carbon dioxide over a 20-year timeframe. Leading scientists estimate this gas alone is responsible for a quarter of the changes to Earth’s climate. Recent research also reveals that methane pollution from B.C.’s oil and gas sector (mainly fracked gas) is at least 2.5 times greater than has been reported. This finding challenges the claim that natural gas, including liquefied natural gas, is a “clean” transition fuel.
If we take action, reducing methane emissions can be a big part of the solution.
Right now, the provincial government is drafting regulations that could drastically reduce emissions of this potent climate pollutant. This is a huge opportunity for real, measurable change.
