Methane

EarthKeepers 360 has partnered with New Mexico Interfaith Power and Light to encourage faith communities throughout New Mexico to call for stronger methane reduction regulations. Strong regulations are one step to address methane pollution and waste that costs millions of dollars in revenue loss to our schools, harm to health, and escalation of climate change. Methane is responsible for about twenty-five percent of the climate warming we experience. In New Mexico, oil and gas operations release more than 1 million metric tons of methane every year with a short term impact equivalent to approximately 22 coal-fired power plants or 28 million automobiles.
