The NY Times reports the White House is advancing plans to regulate methane emissions.

With two primary sources of methane being oil & gas production and cattle operations there is a significant opportunity to curtail emissions by focusing on this ‘low hanging fruit.’ Couple this focus with the fact that capturing methane is useful for energy generation and other products the benefits are multiplied beyond doing ‘the good.’

Additionally the fact that 1 unit of methane is equivalent to 20 units of carbon dioxide only serves to amplify the incentive to assist dairy farms with financing and installations of methane capturing technology, as well as strict regulations for petroleum production to install and maintain an ‘airtight’ infrastructure to extract and transport.
