Last quote about Methane

Bruce Adderley
The UK has certainly transitioned from where CCS was being investigated to provide a new fleet of coal-fired power stations – that is long off the agenda now. The areas of focus that are coming through strongly now are both industrial CCS and the potential to use CCS in conjunction with converting the gas grid from running on methane, to hydrogen.feedback

“Because there are microbial activities that produce methane. That's the reason why we track microbial activity. It's not only microbial activity that produces methane, though. There are also geological processes that are utterly a-biotic, with no trace of life. They are biological processes that produce methane. We will have to differentiate, and we will have the means to do so, whether the methane is of biological or rather geological origin.” said Cathy Quantin-Nataf speaking about Methane.

Peter Zalzal - EDF

It's something that states like Wyoming, California, Colorado and Ohio are already doing.feedback

Peter Zalzal - EDF

It delivers almost half of the smog reductions and more than half of the methane reductions and 90 percent of toxic air pollution reductions. There's absolutely no assurance to the public, who stand to benefit from these protections, that this will happen in the absence of enforceable safeguards. It's something that states like Wyoming, California, Colorado and Ohio are already doing.feedback

Karin Andreassen

The thinning and the retreating of the ice sheet led to increased concentration of gas hydrates in increasingly shallow layers below the ice sheet.feedback

Stephen Grasby

The novel study points out that we still have a poor understanding of the mechanisms of how methane hydrates melt and release gas, and the potential of that methane to reach the atmosphere.feedback

Stephen Grasby

The authors show exciting new evidence that this methane can be trapped in the sediment and released in large bursts, with a much greater potential of reaching the atmosphere.feedback

Karin Andreassen

I think it was probably like a lot of champagne bottles being opened at different times.feedback

David Doniger - Natural Resources Defense Council

On the heels of news reports that the U.S. will walk away from a global commitment to combat climate change, President Trump is sabotaging headway the U.S. has already made. The Trump administration is giving its friends in the oil and gas industry a free pass to continue polluting our air. ... We will fight Trump's latest polluter giveaway in court.feedback

Jean-Pierre Lebreton

The landscapes of Titan look a lot like what we have on Earth – we have rivers, we have lakes, we have seas, almost oceans of methane.feedback

Jean-Pierre Lebreton

It rains, it rains methane, or a mix of ethane and methane, so there are lots of meteorological phenomena or geophysical phenomena on Titan that make you think of what happens on Earth, but the ingredients are quite different.feedback

John McCain

While I am concerned that the BLM rule may be onerous, passage of the resolution would have prevented the federal government, under any administration, from issuing a rule that is 'similar,' according to the plain reading of the Congressional Review Act. I believe that the public interest is best served if the Interior Department issues a new rule to revise and improve the BLM methane rule.feedback

James Williams

In recent months, thousands of Americans asked the Senate to stand up for clean air and against the oil lobby, and their efforts were successful today.feedback

Gavin Schmidt

Methane emissions are not just a climate problem but contribute directly to poor air quality.feedback

Michael Brune - Sierra Club

Today is a victory for our public lands and for the health of families across America, and a defeat for Donald Trump, corporate polluters, and their friends on Capitol Hill. People across the country will continue to resist and hold Congress and Trump accountable for any efforts to put the profits of polluters before the health of our families and our communities.feedback

Edward J. Markey

Today's vote is a win for American taxpayers, a win for public health and a win for our climate. Rejecting this Republican attempt to allow oil and gas companies to continue wasting natural gas owned by the American people will ensure that American taxpayers will not get burned. And it will ensure we don't lose control of managing methane emissions on public lands that contribute to climate change.feedback

Erik Milito

The rule could impede U.S. energy production while reducing local and federal revenues.feedback

Barack Obama

People aren't as familiar with the impact of cows and methane, unless you're a farmer. Then you know what takes place there. Some of it is just lack of knowledge in the general public. Now keep in mind, it took a long time to educate people around climate change and we still have a lot of work to do. So even in our religion and our art, food is important. Because food is so close to us and part of our families and what we do every single day, people are more resistant to the idea of government or bureaucrats telling us how to eat, what to eat, how to grow, etc. Some of it is that resistance.feedback

Maria Cantwell

We can keep our commitment to people or we can let polluters off the hook.feedback

Liz Earle

I've been writing the 'you are what you eat' message for so many years, but it's actually much more than that, . It's 'What what we eat has eaten' that actually matters. That's why we're 100 per cent grass-fed here. For all kinds of reasons, in the UK we need these animals on the land fertilising the soil. We can't just turn it over to a monoculture of lentils. We need these animals who are enriching the soil. Studies have shown that pasture-fed animals are helping with carbon capture in the soil and producing less methane.feedback

Neil Parish

Food waste has grotesque economic, social and environmental costs. Economically, food waste costs households hundreds of pounds a year and causes increased disposal costs to local authorities, pushing up council tax bills. Socially it is a scandal that people are going hungry and using food banks when so much produce is being wasted. And environmentally, it is a disaster, because energy and resources are wasted in production only for the food to end up rotting in landfills where it produces methane – a potent climate-changing gas.feedback

Steve Mars - Fish and Wildlife Service

We've found that many of the existing approaches for dealing with this issue are solutions for methane burners that have intermittent flames, as opposed to the structure we are dealing with that has a continuously burning stack.feedback

Stephen Grasby

What's been suggested as happening both in the geologic record and as a concern for the modern is you sort of have a runaway scenario.feedback

Carolyn Ruppel - U.S. Geological Survey

It is certainly plausible that these seeps could have emitted methane that had been sequestered in marine gas hydrates until warming caused the hydrates to destabilize. On present-day Earth, gas hydrate breakdown caused by the impingement of warming ocean waters is thought to be widespread on upper continental slopes in the Arctic Ocean … and in temperate latitudes. Contemporary cold seeps recognized in the Arctic Ocean and on the U.S. Atlantic and Pacific margins leak methane that may in part originate with gas hydrate breakdown.feedback

Stephen Grasby

They're all the exact same layer in the geologic record. There's this one horizon where you have all these methane seep mounds that were discovered.feedback

Carolyn Ruppel - U.S. Geological Survey

The recent study does not change our understanding of the contemporary record or our predictions about the fate of deepwater methane hydrate deposits in the future.feedback

Andres Restrepo - Sierra Club

Scott Pruitt is continuing his relentless assault on public health and a stable climate at the behest of corporate polluters by seeking to dismantle life-saving methane safeguards. His decision to delay the standards on behalf of his close ally is, quite simply, illegal.feedback

Rachel Cleetus

Fundamentally, the [coal-plant] retirements we've been seeing haven't been driven by the Clean Power Plan. The first compliance date was 2022. We're seeing these record retirements because of market factors. Getting to the situation of an over-reliance on natural gas is really problematic. Not only does it create methane emissions, it creates this long-term permanent infrastructure.feedback

Mark Boling - Southwestern Energy

It will depend on price. It's the market that drives. We still plan to drive methane emissions down because we think it's part of our core business to be as efficient as possible in removing natural gas from the ground and getting it to our customers. We are definitely going to do that.feedback

Tim O'Connor

If the federal government won't protect the people and the environment from oil and gas pollution, it has to be up to the states.feedback

Joseph von Fischer

I think that environmental issues are inherently multifaceted – they arise from human use of technology, they arise from social and economic factors, and they arise within a political and legal framework. It's been fascinating for me to be on the technological and science side, but [also] partnering with people both on the industry side and on the environmentalist side to help bring about resolutions to those issues.feedback

Joseph von Fischer

The distance from the middle of most city streets to the location of the front of a house is typically 60 feet or less. We felt that that was an adequate distance range because we felt that most of the leaks we observed would be within that distance range. This is a scientifically sound tool that brings about really rapid and low-cost ability to find the largest leaks so they can be targeted for replacement.feedback

Gabriel Yvon-Durocher

This is the first experiment to investigate the long-term effects of warming in aquatic ecosystems. Given the substantial contribution small ponds make to the emission of greenhouse gases, it is vital to understand how they might respond to global warming. Our findings show that warming can fundamentally alter the carbon balance of small ponds over a number of years, reducing their capacity to absorb carbon dioxide and increasing emissions of methane.feedback

Petteri Taalas - World Meteorological Organisation

2016 was an extreme year for the global climate and stands out as the hottest year on record. But temperatures only tell part of the story. Long-term indicators of human-caused climate change reached new heights in 2016. Carbon dioxide and methane concentrations surged to new records. Both contribute to climate change.feedback

Marielle Saunois

We should do more about methane emissions. If we want to stay below a 2 degrees (Celsius) temperature increase, we should not follow this track and need to make a rapid turnaround.feedback

Robert Jackson

When it comes to methane, there has been a lot of focus on the fossil fuel industry, but we need to look just as hard if not harder at agriculture. The situation certainly isn't hopeless. It's a real opportunity.feedback

Ann Carine Vandaele

The problem with the current detections of methane is that they vary a lot. So some have measured methane more around the equator. Others more near the poles. That's one of the problems with the detection of this gas, which is that we don't know why we have detected it in certain areas at certain periods.feedback

Nicolas Thomas

We know that there are volcanic mechanisms that can produce methane, and that's got very little to do with life in that particular case. You could also, for example, have methane trapped in ice and again it has got nothing to do with current life.feedback

Manish Patel

I think that the landing in 2020 won't depend that much on the 2016 mission, even though the main technologies are going to be the same. But the weight (of the lander) will be much bigger in 2020.feedback

Andrea Accomazzo

There's a large part of our flight that we definitely understand, which is the initial part, the high velocity part, the parachute part. It's only the final part when the parachute has been released, the retro thrusters were fired – this part we don't understand what has happened yet.feedback

Stephen Lewis

It's a very mixed bag of feelings at the moment. We would have loved to have that little bit of surface science. But actually the AMELIA experiment is all about understanding the atmosphere as we fly through it, its structure and its density. And eventually all of that information will come back to us except for that last little bit. So we're going to recover nearly all of the science that we were expecting to get.feedback

Robert Ballard

It appears that the entire coast off Washington, Oregon and California is a giant methane seep.feedback

Rob Vandenheuvel

They have wanted to go after methane. I think it absolutely will result in some sort of regulatory rule.feedback

Carol Werner

Acting on HFCs does not exempt us from acting on CO2 or other important greenhouse gases like methane. We emit considerably more carbon, and it lingers in the atmosphere for more than 500 years.feedback

Malhari Habbu - Clarke Energy

We are making this process more economical as well as environmentally friendly. The biogas generated through the process here mainly contains methane, which is a highly hazardous gas for the greenhouse. By using it for power generation we are reducing the greenhouse effect caused by this plant.feedback

Jerry Brown

California's combatting climate change on all fronts and this plan gets us the most bang for the buck. It directs hundreds of millions where it's needed most – to help disadvantaged communities, curb dangerous super pollutants and cut petroleum use – while saving some for the future.feedback

Ricardo Lara - Bell

With this bill we prove again that California doesn't shy away from tackling major climate change legislation. We lead.feedback

Bill Magavern

It's important that we reduce emissions of these super-pollutants rapidly.feedback

Jon Goldstein

Since this is a problem with natural gas infrastructure, it's a problem that we can fix. Once these leaks are detected by regular inspections, we can go out with a wrench or unstick a plugged valve.feedback

Nicolas Thomas

CaSSIS is designed to look at dynamic processes on the surface of Mars, and so we'll be looking at things that are happening, changes that are occurring on the surface.feedback

Sanjoy Som - Nasa

This study doesn't yield direct knowledge about the air composition. Nonetheless, because most of the air pressure is nitrogen, and you needed greenhouse gases to compensate for a faint sun, methane – a powerful greenhouse gas – was a likely important constituent, as well as water vapor – another powerful greenhouse gas.feedback

Ann Carine Vandaele

Methane is important because on Earth it's linked to biological processes.feedback

Ann Carine Vandaele

Inside this box there are three spectrometers which will analyse the composition of the atmosphere of Mars, and methane in particular.feedback

Ann Carine Vandaele

There haven't been enough tangible evidence to be able to say that there is life, or there was life on Mars.feedback

Dianne Feinstein

What's happening at Aliso Canyon is a very serious event, forcing the relocation of more than 3, 000 families. We have a responsibility not only to address this leak, but also to ensure nothing like this ever happens again. This amendment, which directs the government to look at the cause of the leak and the response, will provide valuable lessons on how we can keep communities all around the country safe from similar situations.feedback

Jorge Vago

Mars is a cold, frigid desert, with a very thin atmosphere, that gets bathed in cosmic radiation and intense UV light. It is not a place (where) you want to be. In March, a Russian Proton rocket is going to send our first spacecraft to Mars. We want to solve the mystery of methane on Mars. And a second mission, which will go a few years from now, has a rover and an instrumented surface platform, as well.feedback

Sam Atwood

They're doing it with the full knowledge that they're going to be required to do it.feedback

Russ Schnell - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

You can't see it, you can't smell, you can't hear it. It's almost an invisible leak.feedback

Russ Schnell - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

It's not just sitting there. It's under hundreds of pounds of pressure – in some places much more – so all it takes is a little leak, and out it comes.feedback

Cathy Quantin-Nataf

There is a chance that there is life on Mars today. And we really feel there's a chance that there has been (life) in the past.feedback

Cathy Quantin-Nataf

Really that's the idea of throwing out this question, to find out whether life has appeared only on our planet or not. It's the big question for ExoMars, I hope that this mission will answer it. Has life developed on a planet other than Earth?feedback

Cathy Quantin-Nataf

Well, moments where methane was present in the atmosphere have been detected, it was detected a few years ago, like moments where there was more methane in the atmosphere, we're trying to understand why. And whether it was linked to biological activity or not, we don't exactly have the answer yet. But from time to time there is methane in the Martian atmosphere and we don't know where this methane comes from.feedback

Cathy Quantin-Nataf

Scientists can't answer that question yet. But we can't say that there isn't life either.feedback

Jeremy Wilks

Will the Exomars mission manage to prove, once and for all, whether there has ever been life on Mars?feedback

Cathy Quantin-Nataf

This mission is really focused on the traces of life. Until now missions were really focused on habitability, the emergence of life, now this is really about traces of life. In particular, this mission is focused on the atmosphere, on clues in the atmosphere as to microbial life, past or present.feedback

Cathy Quantin-Nataf

Right now, on the surface of Mars it's difficult to live life as we know it today. In the past we think the conditions were very favourable, that's why we're very obsessed with habitability, the conditions favourable for the emergence of life in its old state. So that's roughly where we are, in finding out whether life is possible today and whether it existed in the past.feedback

Cathy Quantin-Nataf

Because there are microbial activities that produce methane. That's the reason why we track microbial activity. It's not only microbial activity that produces methane, though. There are also geological processes that are utterly a-biotic, with no trace of life. They are biological processes that produce methane. We will have to differentiate, and we will have the means to do so, whether the methane is of biological or rather geological origin.feedback

Jeremiah Lengoasa

The main long-lived greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide have reached their highest recorded levels since the beginning of the industrial age – this, in spite of the recent economic slowdown.feedback
