RE^2: Reguleringer bekreftet å komme + konkurranse!!

EPA sin undersøkelse blir grundig imøtegått. Forskning er relative greier og og modeller må forstås fullt ut.

Ikke ta så tungt at det er innhold hentet fra Greenpeace og som imøtegår EPA. Det er innholdet som må vurderes:

Methane and the EPA

Though the IPCC and countries around the world have updated their greenhouse gas inventories as scientists refine our understanding of methane’s Global Warming Potential, the US Environmental Protection Agency continues to use outdated figures to judge methane’s impact on the climate.

EPA currently uses a GWP of 25 over 100 years for calculating the impact of methane on climate change. The EPA calculates greenhouse gas emissions in an annual report called the U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks, commonly referred to as the greenhouse gas inventory. The EPA’s GWP is based on the IPCC’s fourth Assessment Report, published in 2007, not the most recent, published in 2013.

By using a 100-year time scale, the EPA vastly under estimates the damage methane will cause to the climate in the next two critical decades. Scientists say that methane could push the climate over a “tipping point” in the next 18-25 years, causing runaway global warming, and making a 100-year timeline obsolete. By combining a falsely low GWP and a misleading 100-year time horizon, the EPA’s methane estimates falsely dilutes the impact of methane emissions, and undermines the urgency of taking the steps necessary to avoid climate catastrophe.

EPA’s most recent U.S. Greenhouse Gas Inventory shows that the oil and gas industry leaked or released approximately 8.4 million metric tons of methane in 2011, comparable to the carbon dioxide emissions of at least 60 coal-fired power plants. However, there is evidence that the EPA’s estimates are far too low and out of step with the most recent scientific studies of methane emissions.

A recent Stanford report concluded that there is already about 50 percent more methane in the atmosphere than previously estimated by the Environmental Protection Agency.
