Four corners: The largest US methane anomaly viewed from space

Geophysical Research Letters
16 Oct 2014
Eric A. Kort, Christian Frankenberg, Keeley R. Costigan, Rodica Lindenmaier, Manvendra K. Dubey, Debra Wunch
Satellite data, as well as earth-based remote sensing, is used to compare federal emission estimates to real-world observations and finds that the largest methane anomaly viewable from space is located over the Four-Corners regions of the southwestern U.S., the source of which is likely fossil fuel development.

Limited impact on decadal-scale climate change from increased use of natural gas

Nature
15 Oct 2014
McJeon H, Edmonds J, Bauer N, Clarke L, Fisher B, Flannery BP, Hilaire J, Krey V, Marangoni G, Mi R, Riahi K, Rogner H, Tavoni M
A collaboration of five state-of-the-art integrated energy-climate models show that increased natural gas consumption and substitution of coal by natural gas is unlikely to have significant climate benefits and , more likely, will increase greenhouse gas emissions from the energy sector.
