Quotable

“The most immediate thing we can do in the plan is to cut methane emissions, leaks and wasted and flared methane, which is a productive hydrocarbon. And it’s one we’re just tossing into the air like it’s some kind of free and open sewer, If we acted on the recommendations that came out of the most recent accords, we could lower global warming by four degrees Celsius. The large oil companies have already pledged that they will put in place better and more effective caps and controls on their wells. One of the most important developments that will happen later this year is a project called Climate TRACE, where 50 nonprofits are coming together to pool in near real time their data on emissions around the world. Think of Google Earth, a kind of map that you can track the carbon, carbon emissions specifically focused on methane as a first and most potent gas.” – Kleiner Perkins Partner John Doerr on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” discussing federal opportunities to cut inflation
