European scientists urge faster plugging of methane leakages


COP28: Meeting ‘needs to boost pledge to stop greenhouse gas leaking from fossil-fuel industry’

European countries need to strengthen support for pledges to reduce methane emissions by 30 per cent in seven years to fight global warming, an umbrella-group of science academies has said.

The topic needs “greater ambition and more urgency” said the group, made up of the national academies of the EU member states, Norway, Switzerland and the UK.
