Methane emissions from abandoned oil and gas wells underestimated

A recent study finds that annual methane emissions from abandoned oil and gas (AOG) wells in Canada and the US have been greatly underestimated – by as much as 150% in Canada, and by 20% in the US. Indeed, the research suggests that methane gas emissions from AOG wells are currently the 10th and 11th largest sources of anthropogenic methane emission in the US and Canada, respectively.

New study reveals how fences hinder migratory wildlife in Western US

Wildlife biologists combined GPS location data of tagged mule deer and pronghorn antelope with satellite imagery of Wyoming fences to find out just how often these animals encounter fences, and what happens when they do. The results help pinpoint which fences pose the biggest barrier to ungulates trying to access their ideal habitat.
