US and Canada agree to lower methane emission targets

US and Canada agree to lower methane emission targets

In today's official state visit, President Obama praised Canada for joining the US in their fight to reduce methane emissions from the oil and gas industry by up to 45% below 2012 levels by 2025.

The PM neglected to mention that Alberta and Saskatchewan already have similar targets in place and presently have much tighter methane and flaring regulations than the US. Methane is 30 times more powerful as a warming agent than CO2. However, the largest emitter of methane is actually the agricultural industry.

Obama's targets are non-binding since they will likely not get passed by congress.
