June 25, 2019: Turning one of the worst greenhouse gases, methane, into carbon dioxide – not the worst greenhouse, but much more abundant – could still work out positive for the planet.
June 24, 2019: A spike in methane hints at the tantalizing possibility of alien life, but follow-up experiments are necessary before jumping to any conclusions.
June 24, 2019: NASA’s Curiosity Rover has detected a surprising spike in the level of methane on Mars.

June 24, 2019: Curiosity’s record-breaking measurement fuels speculation it is from microbial MartiansNasa’s Curiosity rover has detected its largest belch of methane on Mars so far, fuelling speculation that the robot may have trundled through a cloud of waste gas released by microbial Martians buried deep under the surface.M...
June 23, 2019: NASA scientists say its Curiosity rover discovered high amounts of methane gas on Mars. On Earth, the gas is typically produced by living things. CBS News space consultant Bill Harwood joined CBSN to discuss if this observation could mean there's life on Mars.
June 7, 2019: A new study used a Google Street View car to gather the data.
May 20, 2019: Usually, choosing between the lesser of two evils is a dismal decision. But sometimes, it’s an opportunity. A case in point: Turning methane (a powerful greenhouse gas) into carbon dioxide (also a planet-warming pollutant) could help fight climate change, researchers say. It’s not that CO2 isn’t...
May 17, 2019: A 2015 blowout at a natural gas well that led to the largest-known release of methane in U.S. history was the result of a corroded pipe casing and safety failures by a California utility, according to an investigation report released Friday. Southern California Gas Co. didn’t investigate previous...
May 2, 2019: The Flames of Chimaera are fueled by an underground methane seep, but not the garden-variety kind.

April 1, 2019: Gas detected by Curiosity rover may have been released from fractured Martian permafrostA waft of methane detected by Nasa’s Curiosity rover on Mars may have been released from a layer of permafrost containing bubbles of the gas that was fractured by a geological event, researchers have said.It is the first time s...
March 12, 2019: Ben Ratner, senior director with EDF+Business, sat down with Matt Kolesar, regulatory manager at ExxonMobil’s XTO Energy affiliate, to discuss the company’s perspective on why methane is such a key issue for the industry and how technology and regulation can accelerate industry’s progress.
March 7, 2019: Even with record output, use, and exports, the U.S. oil and gas industry has been lowering methane emissions. This is especially a benefit for natural gas operators because they are providing the U.S. and trading partners our go-to fuel for new energy demand.
March 4, 2019: If growth continues, it could negate or reverse any gains made by reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
