On the 4th anniversary of their seminal paper with Rene Santoro, "Methane and the greenhouse gas footprint of natural gas from shale formations", Profs. Bob Howarth and Tony Ingraffea will present a retrospective on  the new science that has ensued, the resulting proposed policy and regulatory changes, and the ongoing socio-political "discourse" on this topic. They will show videos of ongoing venting and leakage of methane from various sources and discuss the continuing impact of methane emissions on both air quality and climate change.
