Default Shell Breaks Ranks Urges US To Curb Methaine Leaks

Like the 1970's clean water act that is still cleaning up our rivers and lakes keeping up efforts to curb the leaks of Methane from being released into the air is not only doable but good on all accounts . Shell is right because Methane is 80 times more harmful to the environment than ' plant food ' CO2 .
However they should be realistic and admit the leaks are a small percentage compared to the natural release that goes on all around the world particularly from Methane Ice sheets on the ocean floor .
We should make efforts to not add harmful gasses to the atmosphere where we can and AOC should restrict her intake of cow meat and wear a butt plug on both ends to capture her methane and hot air .

Landfills tend to produce/release a fair amount of methane. It's semi-straightforward to basically burn this methane to drive a turbine/generator to produce electricity. You're not going to get all that much from a given landfill, but the fuel is basically free. And even though the burning of methane produces CO2 (and also a large volume of water vapor), the greenhouse gas effect of the resulting CO2 is far less than that of the unburnt methane. (If you worry about that sort of thing....)

Who knew that you could reduce greenhouse gases by burning a hydrocarbon?

Why worry about the 97 percent when you can use the .375 to control things .
Be glad the Illinois Loons Gray water plan got shelved after it was found to make commerce crater .
Water exposed on rooftop chill coolers ruled Gray water because of exposure to the air and contaminates we breathe . That's nuts but it was the short lived law .

Sorry folks, better realize that the MMGW clergy only want to enact measures to extract more $$ and power from the ignorant, frightened sheeple.
So, they will only support measures/efforts which further their commie goals.

Actually there are sporadic outbreaks of often-times-fatal Legionnairesí Disease (L. pneumophila) due to chillers. Itís actually not a bad idea to use special design techniques on replacement chillers to prevent it. But I doubt that something as factual and significant as L. pneumophila was the motivation of those behind the effort you cited. Or maybe it was. Itís actually a legitimate concern, but designing to prevent it doesnít have to break the bank - unless that is the real intent of those requiring mitigation measures.
