Scientists, Activists, Policymakers Focus on Los Angeles
The Coalition for Clean Air is hosting the California Methane Symposium in partnership with Climate Resolve and the Environmental Defense Fund on March 12, from 1:30-4:30pm at Deaton Hall in downtown Los Angeles.
“Southern California has a methane problem,” Los Angeles-based CCA says. “This potent greenhouse gas traps 84 times more heat pound-for-pound than carbon dioxide in the first 20 years after it is emitted.”
The symposium includes scientists, activists, and policymakers:
- Climate change and methane experts from leading academic and research institutions will discuss the science behind methane as a major climate change agent and announce newly funded research.
- Scientists and government representatives will detail what is both known and unknown about concentrations and sources of methane in California, such as landfill emissions, oil extraction and refinement and aging gas transmission infrastructure.
- Representatives from local and state agencies, utilities and leading organizations will describe the steps being taken to limit methane pollution and strategies for increasing their benefits.
“Learn what’s being done and what you can do,” CCA says.
