Levels of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, have doubled in the past 150 years due to human activity, particularly from fossil fuels and extensive farming. Until recently, most methane monitoring was conducted by industry, but now independent researchers and citizen scientists are tracking methane releases in their communities. In addition, the soon-to-be-launched MethaneSAT will measure methane emissions anywhere on Earth with great precision. Join us for updates on the latest science, data and policy initiatives around methane, tips on covering methane and ways to track methane in your local region or around the world.
