NOAA: Oil and Gas Production Not Responsible For Methane Increases

A new study from researchers with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reveals that microbial sources such as rice paddies and wetlands are the cause of the global increase in methane emissions, not fossil fuel development.



This data is counter to what many media outlets have reported to be fact and shows that despite dramatic increase in the production of oil and gas, methane levels are not increasing as a result.

In a blog from EnergyInDepth, author Katie Brown, PhD, outlines four facts from the study. Read them HERE.

    Does not suprise me, that NOAA has discovered this. My dad use to work for them I am remember a 7th grade teach telling me nothing man made can be seen from space. The next week I brought in satilite pictures of the great wall of China and got sent to the principles office back in 1978.

    Education and liberal media off spreads miss-information.
