A Comparative Assessment of Alberta’s Oil and Gas Methane Emissions Under the ECCC rules and AER’S Draft Directive 060
Based on new comprehensive modeling, Alberta’s draft methane regulations will reduce far less harmful methane pollution than if Alberta’s oil and gas producers followed the federal methane regulations enacted earlier this year by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). This analysis is based on emissions estimates and models provided directly by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC).
Modeled Impacts of Oil and Gas on Air Quality and Human Health
The primary goal of this modeling study is to estimate the modeled impacts on U.S. air quality and human health, of emissions associated with the Oil and Gas (O&G) sector.
Buying Time: Controlling Black Carbon and Methane Emissions in the Arctic
The Arctic is unraveling. Since the mid-1960s, the annual mean surface temperature over Arctic land areas has increased by more than two degrees Celsius, almost twice the global average rate of change and the environmental “tipping point” for international climate change negotiations.
CPP Rate Merger
EPA must retain the requirement that rate-based states seeking to engage in interstate trading merge their target emission rates.
