Satellite data could prove critical in cutting methane emissions
LOS ANGELES – (INT) – Governor Newsom appeared at the Summit of the Americas Wednesday telling the delegates about California’s efforts to cut methane emissions, one of the worst climate pollutants.

Specifics include plugging idle oil wells at risk of leaking methane and launching a network of satellites that could provide real-time data on leaks from oil and gas infrastructure and landfills.

The satellites could identify and track 40 percent of global methane emissions. The network might give California regulators the tools to hold polluters accountable.

Newsom says the rest of the world would benefit with timely access to data on leaks when they occur.
