Methane & Exposure Concerns
Methane (CH4) is a colorless, odorless and extremely flammable gas that can be explosive when mixed with air. It is a primary component of natural gas and is a major greenhouse gas. It is used to make ammonia, formaldehyde, hydrogen and methanol. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, human-related sources of methane include emissions from burning fossil fuels (such as coal, gasoline, natural gas and oil). These emissions can come from vehicles, fuel-burning equipment, operations on oil and gas fields, the processing, storage, and transport of natural gas, and the generation of electricity at coal-fired power plants. Hydraulic fracturing can also emit methane and methane is released from coal deposits during underground and surface mining. Other sources of methane include the decomposition of waste in open dumps and landfills. Methane can be emitted from the digestive processes of domesticated livestock (such as cattle, goats and sheep, and from agricultural feeding operations), be produced during the decomposition of animal waste and be released through liquid manure management systems (such as lagoons and holding tanks). It can also be produced when manure is deposited on crop fields or pastures as fertilizer. Processes during wastewater treatment can emit methane, as can some of the sludge produced. People are exposed to low levels of methane by breathing outdoor air. Those living by or working in an oil or gas field, coal mine, abandoned mine, farm, landfill, wastewater treatment plant, coal-fired power plant, hydraulic fracturing operation or a facility that uses methane to manufacture other chemicals could be exposed to higher levels. Methane in its gas form is an asphyxiant, which in high concentrations may displace a person’s oxygen supply, especially in confined spaces. Decreased oxygen can cause suffocation and loss of consciousness. It can also cause headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting and loss of coordination. Skin contact with liquid methane can cause frostbite. These are just a few things to know about methane and potential exposure concerns.

How Burning Fossil Fuels Leads to Climate Change | Chemistry for All | FuseSchool
Learn the basics about climate change and how burning fossil fuels adds extra carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, and how this then leads to climate change. Fossil fuels, like oil, coal and natural gas, are the remains of living things from millions of years ago. They are mainly composed of carbon with varying amounts of hydrogen. When the petrol burns, it joins with oxygen to build up hydrogen oxide and carbon dioxide. Before the world became industrialised by burning fossil fuels the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere was about 0.028% tiny compared with oxygen at 21% and nitrogen at 78%, but enough to keep us warm. Without this natural blanket of insulating gas the earth would be too cold to support life as we know it. But this carbon dioxide released when fossil fuels burn adds to the existing carbon dioxide levels which are now nearly 50% higher than pre-industrial times. Although we get a daily supply of heat from the sun, the earth normally loses this (at night and in the colder seasons) so the average temperature of the earth remains constant. But this status quo is starting to change: as humanity adds carbon dioxide into our atmosphere the extra layer isolates the heat and it cannot escape as easily. The earth cannot lose its greenhouse gases quickly – and we keep adding to them! By putting our planet in a sweat box, we are causing wide ranging consequences for our climate and life on the planet. Some people think that living things contribute to the enhanced greenhouse effect because they breathe out carbon dioxide – but this carbon has come from their food and that has come from plants which took the carbon from the atmosphere in what is called the carbon cycle. Even burning wood does not contribute to the enhanced greenhouse effect as long as the trees you cut down are replanted. However the carbon in fossil fuels has remained trapped underground for 100’s of millions of years so it is extra carbon that is being added to the natural cycle. We are also throwing away other gases into the atmosphere which help trap infra-red radiation, and so also enhance the natural greenhouse effect. They are methane, especially from rice paddy fields and from cows and nitrous oxide NON from car exhausts. This rise in temperature cause our climate to change because extra energy is trapped on earth – already causing glaciers and ice caps to melt. With more energy in the atmosphere weather becomes more extreme, so there are more floods, droughts, and storms. Not everywhere will get warmer, but the climate is changing all because we have been using fossil fuels at an ever increasing rate.

Russia Is Profiting Off Global Warming | VICE on HBO
While many parts of the world are struggling from catastrophic effects of climate change, Russia is looking to capitalize on it, with the Kremlin driving a narrative that touts the economic benefits. Like more and faster access to petroleum and mineral reserves that were previously unreachable. The Northern Sea Passage, a legendary shipping lane along Russia’s Arctic coastline, has been largely inaccessible for part of the year because of dense sea ice. But now, that ice is melting, opening up a new trade route for Russia's cargo ships. Russian oil companies are already betting big on the new reserves they hope to find in the Russian Arctic, and other industries — like mining — are ramping up production since they now have faster shipping routes to many ports. “The problem of climate change is actually the problem of adaptation to climate change. This is not a tragedy,” said Nobel Prize-winning climatologist Oleg Anisimov. “Certainly some places will become unlivable, but other areas are places that will become more livable.” But the Russian people seem unaware, or unconcerned, about the environmental impacts of these climate change-related activities, like pollution from the booming factories, and wildfires in the North that destroyed million of acres of forest in a major tourism area. VICE’s Gianna Toboni visited Russia's Arctic to see just how big the country is betting on climate change.

Light Your Water On Fire from Gas Drilling, Fracking
A video by Scott Cannon DEP consent order proving methane migration: http://imgur.com/OWUXAYN http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL062539BFB8A2B2D4&feature=view_all Please read this before saying methane migration doesn't exist. It's a proven fact: http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/sunday-times-review-of-dep-drilling-records-reveals-water-damage-murky-testing-methods-1.1491547 The Promised Land in real life. Matt Damon John Krasinski People can light their taps on fire because of gas drilling. This is one of those cases. In fact, one of the companies that produced Truthland, Chesapeake Energy, was responsible for this mess. A snippet from the Marcellus Shale Reality Tour video Sherry Vargson gave the group a tour of her farm in Granville Township, where Chesapeake Energy has drilled one well and installed compressor and metering stations and a gathering pipeline. She said her water became contaminated with methane after maintenance activities at the site in June 2010, and lit water from her tap alight for a trip attendees and the media. The little bus wound its way over green mountains, alongside undeveloped stretches of the meandering Susquehanna River and through some of Pennsylvania's most pristine wilderness. The man inside with the microphone, the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition's Scott Cannon, said there's trouble in paradise as he pointed out the changes Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling has brought to Pennsylvania's Northern Tier. Here was a drilling rig, there a water withdrawal site and every so often yet another pipeline was laid out in preparation for burial. The sights were part of the coalition's "Marcellus Shale Reality Tour," held Sunday for area legislators, municipal representatives and candidates for political office. "We still have to deal with pipelines, compressor stations; they wanted to put a frack water treatment facility in Hanover Township -- that was an hour away from the nearest drill site," Cannon said. About 15 people attended the tour, including candidate for U.S. representative Bill Vinsko, Wilkes-Barre Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin and Luzerne County Council candidates Kathleen Dobash, Salvatore Licata, Eileen Sorokas and Michelle Bednar. "It's all about information," Sorokas said. "You can't beat going firsthand and seeing it. I've heard so many things about it; I want to clarify it in my mind." "It's important to learn about all sides of this important issue," said Vinsko, a Democrat who plans to a 2012 challenge to Republican Lou Barletta in Pennsylvania's 11th Congressional District. "In order to make informed decisions, I wanted to hear from the landowners on both sides of the issue. I also plan to meet with the gas companies to get all sides of the story, but this is an important first step." At least one trip participant had already made up his mind about the issue. Throop Borough Council President Tommy Lukasewicz said he has been fighting against the efforts of Keystone Sanitary Landfill to increase its daily intake by 2,500 tons, which would allow it to accept more solid waste from the gas drilling industry. "I agree more than anyone here probably that this is the worst thing that could happen to Northeastern Pennsylvania," he said, adding that he believes gas drilling could reverse the progress the area has made in erasing the scars left 50 years ago by coal mining. Lukasewicz, who attended Mansfield University and often drove through Bradford County to get there, said he "wanted to see firsthand what an area (he) had known about looks like now."

Fugitive Emissions of Methane Biogas and Landfill Gas Explained
Fugitive Emissions of Methane. Full Article: https://landfill-gas.com/fug Fugitive Emissions of Methane (Biogas and Landfill Gas) Explained It is well known that unintentional escapes of methane and landfill gas (fugitive emissions) occur when methane escapes from a myriad of tiny leaks from production facilities, wells, pipes, compressors and other equipment. Methane continually escapes through tiny leaks from the equipment associated with coal mining or natural gas extraction, landfills, landfill gas utilization plants, and biogas plants. It is obviously very important to reduce all these fugitive methane emissions to an absolute minimum. Methane is more than 80 times more damaging to the atmosphere and more powerful than carbon dioxide over a 20-year time frame. It's the second leading contributor to climate change, after carbon dioxide. Methane accounts for approximately 25 % of the world’s climate warming. Accidentally released methane emissions are the inevitable byproduct of the oil and gas industry and agriculture, and occur from all methane equipment. But, not only from equipment it also gets released when cattle blow-off! Vegans are right when they say reducing demand for dairy and meat will help the environment. 80 % of the GHG emissions due to enteric fermentation (digestion in stomachs) are from the digestive systems of cattle. But, that's enough about cattle emissions, what about biogas plants which imitate cattle to make methane. Unintentional emissions will be occurring from all biogas plants. Storage tanks inevitably leak a small amount, as do pipe joints, valves and other equipment. Other fugitive emissions will occur when digesters are opened-up for maintenance, and during commissioning. However, biogas plant and landfill gas utilization plants would be expected to be similar to those for the natural gas supply industry. Fugitive emission research conducted within the natural gas industry estimates the US national methane fugitive emissions rate for natural gas at about 0.42%. A not insignificant amount overall, and it needs to be reduced. However, the amounts are tiny when compared with the fugitive emission of methane from cattle, and landfills. Municipal solid waste landfills are the third-largest source of human-related methane emissions in the United States, accounting for approximately 15% of these emissions in 2016. Similar figures apply to all developed nations. But, as Vegans can point out. This is well below the 26% emitted from cattle through enteric fermentaton. Thanks for watching right through!

What is COALBED METHANE? What does COALBED METHANE mean? COALBED METHANE meaning & explanation
What is COALBED METHANE? What does COALBED METHANE mean? COALBED METHANE meaning - COALBED METHANE definition - COALBED METHANE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Coalbed methane (CBM or coal-bed methane), coalbed gas, coal seam gas (CSG), or coal-mine methane (CMM) is a form of natural gas extracted from coal beds. In recent decades it has become an important source of energy in United States, Canada, Australia, and other countries. The term refers to methane adsorbed into the solid matrix of the coal. It is called 'sweet gas' because of its lack of hydrogen sulfide. The presence of this gas is well known from its occurrence in underground coal mining, where it presents a serious safety risk. Coalbed methane is distinct from a typical sandstone or other conventional gas reservoir, as the methane is stored within the coal by a process called adsorption. The methane is in a near-liquid state, lining the inside of pores within the coal (called the matrix). The open fractures in the coal (called the cleats) can also contain free gas or can be saturated with water. Unlike much natural gas from conventional reservoirs, coalbed methane contains very little heavier hydrocarbons such as propane or butane, and no natural-gas condensate. It often contains up to a few percent carbon dioxide. Coalbed methane grew out of venting methane from coal seams. Some coal beds have long been known to be "gassy," and as a safety measure, boreholes were drilled into the seams from the surface, and the methane allowed to vent before mining. Coalbed methane as a natural-gas resource received a major push from the US federal government in the late 1970s. Federal price controls were discouraging natural gas drilling by keeping natural gas prices below market levels; at the same time, the government wanted to encourage more gas production. The US Department of Energy funded research into a number of unconventional gas sources, including coalbed methane. Coalbed methane was exempted from federal price controls, and was also given a federal tax credit. In Australia, commercial extraction of coal seam gas began in 1996 in the Bowen Basin of Queensland. Gas contained in coal bed methane is mainly methane and trace quantities of ethane, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and few other gases. Intrinsic properties of coal as found in nature determine the amount of gas that can be recovered. To extract the gas, a steel-encased hole is drilled into the coal seam 100 to 1,500 metres (330 to 4,920 ft) below ground. As the pressure within the coal seam declines due to natural production or the pumping of water from the coalbed, both gas and produced water come to the surface through tubing. Then the gas is sent to a compressor station and into natural gas pipelines. The produced water is either reinjected into isolated formations, released into streams, used for irrigation, or sent to evaporation ponds. The water typically contains dissolved solids such as sodium bicarbonate and chloride but varies depending on the formation geology. Coalbed methane wells often produce at lower gas rates than conventional reservoirs, typically peaking at near 300,000 cubic feet (8,500 m3) per day (about 0.100 m3/s), and can have large initial costs. The production profiles of CBM wells are typically characterized by a "negative decline" in which the gas production rate initially increases as the water is pumped off and gas begins to desorb and flow. A dry CBM well is similar to a standard gas well. The methane desorption process follows a curve (of gas content vs. reservoir pressure) called a Langmuir isotherm. The isotherm can be analytically described by a maximum gas content (at infinite pressure), and the pressure at which half that gas exists within the coal. These parameters (called the Langmuir volume and Langmuir pressure, respectively) are properties of the coal, and vary widely. A coal in Alabama and a coal in Colorado may have radically different Langmuir parameters, despite otherwise similar coal properties.

Help The Ute Tribe Put Methane In Its Place In Colorado | Cool Effect
Colorado is home to an abundance of coal. When coal emerges from the ground and creates a seam, methane escapes into our atmosphere. While conventional methods are unable to capture this leakage, the Southern Ute tribe found a genius solution. Though they don’t mine any of the coal on their land, they did team up with scientists to use a system of wells to naturally capture the methane and funnel it to existing gas pipelines. Learn more and take action with the Southern Ute Indian Tribe Methane Capture Project: https://www.cooleffect.org/content/project/southern-ute-indian-tribe-methane-capture How Does The Project Help Save The Planet? Each year, this project reduces up to 27,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. That’s the equivalent of 1,588 average Americans emitting no greenhouse gases (not even by breathing) for a whole year. Amazing, right? Benefits Of The Project: - Currently, the tribe is not profiting from this project, but continues to manage it because it supports their values - Uses natural methods (wells) to transport the gas to existing pipelines - Provides jobs and income for members of the Southern Ute Indian tribe - Decreases local demand for natural gas Challenges The Project Faces: - Reductions can vary annually due to natural conditions - Methane is highly flammable and can cause sudden fires - Project needs consistent funding to maintain infrastructure - Seepage can be exacerbated by coal-bed methane drilling in other areas Why Did Cool Effect Choose This Project? Global emissions from coal mining are huge and so are the detrimental effects of mining coal on the environment, especially climate change due to methane emissions. Several methodologies have been approved by the United Nations to mitigate the effects of methane emissions from mining coal, but almost all the projects that used these methodologies have closed due to the methodological complexities and uncertainties associated with the quantity and quality of methane gas from coal seams. This project is one of the few very successful projects that started by devising a new methodology and has gone through a painstakingly long process of approval. The project is a pilot initiative that is a model for many thousands of similar coal mining operations across the world. About Cool Effect Earth is our home, our planet. It belongs to each and every one of us, and we share a desire to protect it. Cool Effect gives each of us a chance to take a step toward that goal by supporting projects around the world that reduce carbon pollution. Starting with you and me, we can create a massive, cumulative effect toward cooling the earth. Together, our small actions will ignite planet-sized change. Like Cool Effect on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/cooleffect2/ Follow Cool Effect on Twitter: https://twitter.com/cool_effect Follow Cool Effect on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cooleffect_/ What makes us different? Cool Effect is dedicated to finding the highest-quality projects in the world that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our projects are scientifically proven to reduce carbon, are 100% additional, and provide full transparency in pricing and product detail. When you support one of our projects, you will see clearly how your funding will be used and how it will impact the project and the planet. What does it take to become a Cool Effect project? There are over 10,000 projects around the world working to reduce global warming. To find the top projects, we are working with scientists who have had years of experience in the field evaluating and verifying projects according to United Nations requirements. They conduct an initial review to verify the substantive public documentation each project must submit to meet its certification standard (Gold Standard Foundation, Verified Carbon Standard, Climate Action Reserve, etc.). Then they conduct additional due diligence to verify that the issued credits could not have been produced without income from the sale of carbon and ensure full pricing, financial transparency, and sound management. We make site visits whenever possible or hire others to visit the projects for us. Our goal is to gather and then provide as much background as possible to consumers to communicate both the opportunities and the challenges for each project.

Air pollutant are the substances in the air which have an adverse effect on humans and ecosystem. -these pollutant can be any of the following: methane, carbon dioxide,nitrogen oxide,etc. -these pollutants can either be solid, liquid or in a form of gas, naturally produced or man made. -six common pollutants are: ground level ozone,lead,sulfur dioxide,nitrogen dioxide,carbon monoxide,particulate matter. -kinds of pollutants: *Primary pollutants: produced from processes such as ash from volcanic eruption, vehicle exhaustion etc.For example:carbon monoxide (CO),nitric oxide(NO),sulphur dioxide (SO2),nitrogen dioxide(NO2),ammonia(NH3),particulates(PM),volatile organic compounds(VOCs). *Secondary Pollutants: not emitted directly from the environment rather are formed in the air after primary pollutants react or interact with some other pollutants. These are produced from the primary pollutants.For example:sulphur trioxide(SO3),ntric acid(HNO3),hydrogen peroxide(H2O2),sulphuric acid(H2SO4),particulates,ozone(PM),ammonium(NH4+). -there may be pollutants which might fall under both the categories ~Sources Of Air Pollutants 1. Natural: dust particles,gases released from the body processes,pollen dispersal,smoke from wildfires,volcanos,natural radioactivity . (Each point discussed). 2. Man-made:burning of fossil fuels,agricultural activities,landfill activities,exhaust from factories and industries,mining operation,artificial radioactivity.(Each point discussed). ~Impact Of Air Pollution Effect/ Impact on Environment 1. Global Warming: 2. Acid Rain 3. Green House Effect 4. Hole in Ozone Effect/Impact on Human Health 1. Irritation,Bronchitis,Headache 2. Reduced capacity of blood to carry oxygen 3. Decrease in vision and causing cardio vascular disorders 4. CO and No react with hemoglobin and reduced O2 carrying capacity of blood 5. Headache and nausea 6. Lung problems 7. Asthma 8. Damage to heart,brain,eyes 9. Heavy metals like lead causing poisoning Effect/Impact on Plants 1. Decreased yield 2. Bad quality of crop production 3. Decreased growth rate and increased death rate of plants Effect/Impact on Wildlife 1. Loss of habitat and natural environment 2. Pollutants in air, forcing the species to move further away 3. Chemicals in water affecting marine life 4. Death ~Remedies 1. Creating awareness among people involving the “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” slogan. *awareness points * -ensure area near you is clean -plant trees along busy streets as they remove particulates,carbon dioxide and absorb noise. -make use of wind energy and solar energy,as well as other renewable energy,to minimize burning of fossil fuels -encouraging people to use public transport,walk or use a cycle -regular check up of our vehicles -selection of suitable fuel -industries and waste disposal sites should be situated outside the city -adapt to good industrial process and practices -destroying the pollutants by thermal or catalytic combustion Videos by Edupedia World(www.edupediaworld.com),Online Education, Click on (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJumA3phskPHbFiHVbEv4ak5U_HKv0-K1) for more Videos.All Rights Reserved.

Biothermica in China with Canadian technology to help reduce carbon emissions
Montreal-based company, Biothermica, focuses on industrial air pollution control, methane valorization and destruction from landfills and underground coal mines, and carbon trading. Transcript: HON. CATHERINE MCKENNA (Minister of Environment and Climate Change): Hi Guy. So you’re part of our trade mission here in China, to China, so tell me a bit about your technology and what you’re hoping to achieve. GUY DROUIN (President, Biothermica): Okay. We are a technology company specializing in air pollution control and methane abatement. As you know, methane abatement is a very big challenge because methane emissions over the planet represent more than 15% of all the greenhouse gas being emitted by this planet, and China has a lot of methane emissions under the form of coal mine methane as well as landfill gas, and our technology is very well-adapted for the challenge in order to abate methane from this large country in terms of achieving their objective under the Paris Agreement. HON. CATHERINE MCKENNA: Well it’s great we saw each other in Bonn too, but I love the Canadian technology and China needs solutions, so a great partnership opportunity. GUY DROUIN: Thank you very much. You are my best Minister. HON. CATHERINE MCKENNA: Oh, that’s nice. Thank you. GUY DROUIN: Good bye.

How Dams Are Killing The Environment
We are taught that dams are a good thing. They create boating and picnic areas for family outings, and they create hydropower! But the truth is dams hurt the environment. The truth is the only reason the government wants to build them is because of how much money they make when they get the approval to build dams. New scientific research shows that reservoirs created by dams add nearly a billion tons of carbon dioxide equivalents into the air every year, mostly in the form of methane. This happens because the flooding caused by dams sets off chemical reactions as all the trees and grass suddenly underwater start to break down. In other words, this supposedly “green” energy, intended to reduce emissions, actually may have the opposite effect. Nature has been surviving and thriving for thousands of years. Its time we stop interfering with nature and let it naturally do its thing. If you really look into how dams are made you would see the harmful effects they have on the earth and realize it is just a way for the government to make money. It’s time to tell the truth about the real cost of these dams. ↠ Social Media ↞ ♡ WEBSITE: http://www.fairyvibes.com ♡ INSTAGRAM: http://instagram.com/fairyvibes ♡ SPOTIFY: Fairyvibes ♡ Shop: https://www.fairyvibes.com/shop
