Simply put, fossil fuel extraction is pushing the world to the brink of total extinction for the sake of money. A recent NASA study found that "the recent jump in methane emissions from oil and gas production appears to be a whole lot bigger than we previously thought."
"A new NASA study is one final nail in the coffin of the myth that natural gas is a climate solution, or a “bridge” from the dirtiest fossil fuels to low-carbon fuels like solar and wind.
NASA found that most of the huge rise in global methane emissions in the past decade is in fact from the fossil fuel industry–and that this rise is “substantially larger” than previously thought. And that means natural gas is, as many earlier studies have found, not a climate solution."
