Energy agency chief: “No excuse” for high methane emissions

MOMBASA, Kenya (AP) — The International Energy Agency on Tuesday accused fossil fuel industries of doing too little to curb methane emissions and undermining global climate goals to limit warming.
Economic uncertainty, high energy prices and concerns over the security of supply — which should have led to emissions cuts in 2022 — were ineffective as methane emissions remained “stubbornly high,” it said.
“Methane cuts are among the cheapest options to limit near-term global warming,” said IEA’s executive director Fatih Birol. “There is just no excuse.”
The IEA’s annual Methane Gas Tracker report found that 75% of methane emissions from the oil and gas sector can be reduced with cheap and readily available technologies.

        There is no excuse for not taking this issue seriously and doing what we can to reduce emissions.

          Which body is mandated to hold the culprits responsible. Otherwise we will continue seeing no actions.

            When we see such leaders making such bold stands in shunning away from fossil fuels it gives hope that attaining net-zero goal is attainable. Kudos!

              We cannot accept any excuses from the fossil fuel industries and must hold them accountable for their actions.

                Good that they are pointing out this, but who will take concrete action?
