Coverage of gas emissions since November 22, 2023.

Area covered by mining claims in Ontario’s ‘Ring of Fire’ increased by 30 per cent in one year Globalnews.ca

"...If peatlands are drained, removed, or damaged in this way, they go from being a carbon sink to a carbon emitter. Harris estimates that if just half of the area covered by mining claims is disturbed, it would result in the release of more than one billion tonnes of carbon dioxide — one and half times Canada’s total reported greenhouse gas emissions in 2021.

Oil and gas well drillers want federal funding to help industry decarbonize Globalnews.ca

"...The drilling sector's emissions reduction efforts have not been as high-profile as those of the oilsands industry, which is proposing a $16. 5-billion carbon capture and storage project in northern Alberta that it says will help it reach net-zero emissions from production by 2050. But Scholz said there are many things oil and gas drillers can do to lower their carbon footprint, from rig electrification to hydrogen fuel blending to investing in battery energy storage systems for oil well drilling sites..."

IEA report warns oil and gas companies against banking on carbon capture Globalnews.ca

"...In a report released Thursday, the Paris-based IEA said oil and gas companies need to start “letting go of the illusion” that “implausibly large” amounts of carbon capture are the solution to the global climate crisis. Carbon capture and storage refers to the use of technology to sequester harmful greenhouse gas emissions from industrial processes and store them safely underground. In Canada, carbon capture and storage has become a key pillar of the oil and gas sector's decarbonization goals..."
