In this webinar, the AAAS EPI Center will convene noted experts and practitioners to discuss the scientific evidence that can inform federal, state, regional, and local efforts to mitigate methane emissions and their contributions to changing climatic conditions and to identify the most pressing issues related to potential changes in the regulation of methane emissions from the oil and gas industry. This will be an interactive event designed to share existing information, surface knowledge gaps, and discuss constraints to the implementation of evidence-informed solutions.
