Methane Leaks Across US Pose A Much Greater Threat Than Aliso Canyon | Earth First! Newswire

by Leah Messinger / The Guardian A protester at a public hearing before the South Coast Air Quality Management District in southern California. The Aliso Canyon leak has spewed 80,000 metric tons of methane since October, displacing thousands. Now experts say smaller leaks across the US pose a greater threat. Photograph: David McNew/Getty Images When Stephen Conley, an atmospheric scientist and pilot, saw an emissions indicator skyrocket in his Mooney TLS prop plane, he knew he had found a significant methane leak. His gas-detecting Picarro analyzer indicated he was flying through a plume of gas escaping at 900kg per hour. The colorless, odorless gas was enough to cover a football field to a height of 20 feet in a single day. But this flight wasn’t over the highly publicized Aliso Canyon in Los Angeles; Conley was circling the Bakken Shale, a rock formation in western North Dakota that has been aggressively pumped for oil and natural gas. Day in and day out, small leaks in oil and gas

Living on Earth: Massive Natural Gas Disaster Hits Los Angeles

Since October, a leaking underground natural gas storage facility near Los Angeles has released vast amounts of methane, its main ingredient, into the atmosphere, becoming one of the nation’s worst environmental accidents, as methane starts off 100 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas. Host Steve Curwood and Anthony Ingraffea, a civil and environmental engineer at Cornell University discuss the blowout, including. Professor Ingraffea’s belief that this disaster may be a harbinger of what’s ahead for these aging storage facilities.
