Senior fellow Deborah Gordon recently co-authored an article for Rocky Mountain Institute titled, "Next Stop for Climate Action: Making Emissions Visible and Pricing Them."
Recent global policy convenings — from COPs in Scotland and Egypt to Climate Week in New York — have focused on methane. Remarkably, 125 countries have signed onto the Global Methane Pledge to cut emissions 30 percent by 2030. And, after a generation talking about pricing greenhouse gases, the US Congress passed a new law that puts a price tag on methane emitted by the oil and gas sector. These historic efforts are a big boost for climate action.
