Alberta underestimates methane emissions by 50 per cent: study

"...The study from Carleton University's Energy and Emissions Research Lab also says oil and gas produced in the province emit significantly more methane for the energy produced than jurisdictions such as British Columbia — a measurement that offers a warning to industry, said lead author Matthew Johnson. “The future is, your ability to sell (gas) into certain markets will be based on methane intensity,” he said. Johnson's lab, which published its latest paper in the journal Nature Communications Earth and Environment, combined several different measuring methods for methane, a greenhouse gas considered to be about 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide in the first 20 years after its release..."

Window to meet global climate goals ‘rapidly closing,' UN report warns

"...While the calls for transformation change to climate policies are notable — the report uses a version of the words “urgent” and “transform” at least once on each of its 45 pages — climate experts say the overall message is nothing new. “It's discouraging how many reports keep saying the same thing with increasing desperation,” said Kathryn Harrison, a political science professor at the University of British Columbia who studies climate and energy policy. “It's urgent because we're off track..."

"...Kruger’s walk-back away from clean energy comes after the CEOs of Shell and BP made similar moves. The former Imperial Oil CEO came out of retirement in May only to steer the company “back to being a good old-fashioned oil company,” as Western Standard noted. Suncor had already divested from solar and wind assets last year, reportedly to focus on hydrogen and renewable fuels..."
