Rabe urges Biden administration to prioritize methane in climate policy

"The Biden administration could declare that America is finally ready to lead on methane mitigation. It could design a suite of world-class regulatory and disclosure tools to minimize methane releases for as long as oil and gas continue to be used," said Rabe. "A stretch goal would establish an upstream fee on releases, funding remediation of tens of thousands of abandoned drilling sites that seep methane and pose additional environmental and safety risks."
