Methane is the second most important greenhouse gas driving climate change after carbon dioxide. Unlike carbon dioxide, methane stays in the atmosphere for shorter periods. However, methane has a much higher global warming potential than carbon dioxide.
The U.S. oil and gas value chain emits 13 million metric tons of methane a year, which is a loss of enough natural gas to fuel 10 million homes.
See how various international environmental agencies are tackling carbon emissions.
The International Labor Organization estimates that about 380 000 workers die each year from occupational accidents. Undoubtedly, worker safety is crucial in any environment, but it is critical in hazardous areas.
Global warming is driving extreme climate events across the planet with increasing regularity, scope, and intensity. Hoping to mitigate the effects of climate change, governments around the world are developing carbon taxes to help achieve ambitious climate targets and meet sustainability goals.
