The body of evidence is growing that fracking is not only bad for the global climate, it is also dangerous for local communities. And affected communities are growing in number. A new report, details the sheer amount of water contamination, air pollution, climate impacts, and chemical use in fracking in the United States.

The fire seems to have been caused due to methane gas,” B T Jadhav, senior inspector of Shivaji Nagar police station told The Sunday Express.

Mumbai's degraded waste at Kanjurmarg will produce electricity from April.

The United States and Canada have agreed joint steps to fight climate change, including cutting methane emissions from the oil and gas industry and signing the Paris climate deal "as soon as feasib

Agriculture -- and not fossil fuels -- is the major cause of the rise in methane levels in the atmosphere over the last decade, according to a New Zealand-led study on climate change out Friday.

The terrestrial biosphere can release or absorb the greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), and therefore has an important role in regulating atmospheric composition and climate. Anthropogenic activities such as land-use change, agriculture and waste management have altered terrestrial biogenic greenhouse gas fluxes, and the resulting increases in methane and nitrous oxide emissions in particular can contribute to climate change.

Keeping in consideration rising pollution levels due to burning of waste, East Corporation has installed a plant at its Ghazipur landfill site to extract methane gas on a trial basis.

The winning bidders will secure an option to sell their carbon credits at the ‘strike rate’ – fixed at $3.50 a tonne of CO2 equivalent emission reduction.
