Natural gas power plants only emits half of the carbon dioxide as coal power plants. However, natural gas usage can result in a lot more methane leaks and emissions. One ton of methane emissions has the same warming effect as about 86 tons of CO2 over twenty years. Above is satellite images of large methane leaks Satellites can now me used to monitor the world for large methane leaks and to identify the largest sources of methane emissions. There are about 100 high volume-emitting methane leaks at any one time around the world. Around 50% of these emissions come from
