Undercounted methane emissions could be much worse: Financial Post

According to a recent article in the Financial Post, newly released research suggests Alberta's industry and government are badly underestimating emissions of one of the most potent greenhouse gases.

"The difference between official estimates and the measured results suggests the province’s energy industry could have to double its planned methane emission cuts if Alberta is to meet its promised 45 per cent reduction."

If methane emissions from those other regions are equally underreported, Johnson said, Alberta could be underestimating releases of the gas by as much as 50 per cent.
