Tracking and reducing methane emissions from oil and gas operations needs an innovative approach, according to new report from the C.D. Howe Institute.

Canadian liquefied natural gas can lower global greenhouse gas emissions if it displaces dirtier sources of power abroad, according to a new C.D. Howe Institute report. In “Clearing the Air: How Canadian LNG Exports Could Help Meet World Greenhouse Gas Reduction Goals,” authors James Coleman and Sarah Jordaan show policymakers how they can make their policies on liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facilities align with their economic and environmental goals.
