Hunting an Invisible Super-Pollutant: Strategies to Spot and Eliminate Methane Emissions

July 18, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Methane is a powerful but invisible planet-heating gas that accounts for about one-third of Earth’s warming to date. By cutting methane emissions now, humans can rapidly reduce the rate of global warming, buying time as we lower carbon emissions in the long term. While there are many readily available—and highly profitable—ways to tackle these emissions, finding methane in the first place can be a serious challenge.

This July Lunch & Learn will bring together Deanna Haines, Jorn Dinh Herner, and Francesca Hopkins, three leading methane detection experts who work to see the unseen. They will share lessons and outline how cutting methane can bring about a more stable climate and livable future.
