EPA’s New Methane Rules, Andrés Restrepo, Sierra Club
Please join the Yale Environmental Law Association as we discuss a crucial piece of the climate change policy puzzle. While carbon dioxide gets most of the attention, methane is 86 times more effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere over a 20-year period - and the next 20 years are key to preserving a livable climate. In March the Obama Administration released new regulations to reduce methane emissions from the oil and natural gas industry. Sierra Club Staff Attorney Andrés Restrepo will discuss the rules and how they relate to other efforts to combat climate change.
