Study: A closer look at urban methane pollution
from Environmental Defense Fund
The United States produces approximately 33 trillion cubic feet of natural gas each year. A majority of this gas is converted to electricity at power plants or used for industrial purposes, but about one third ends up making the journey from the well head, through underground pipelines, and into our homes and businesses. How much of this gas gets lost along the way — whether it's through leaky equipment or other factors — is important because of the damaging climate impacts of methane pollution.
