Google Will Share Oil and Gas Methane Leaks Viewed From Space

Google Will Share Oil and Gas Methane Leaks , Viewed From Space. Google and Environmental Defense Fund announced their partnership on Feb. 14, Reuters reports. In March, MethaneSAT will launch and monitor the world's methane emissions in an attempt to locate major sources of the greenhouse gas. The satellite's data will be available later in 2024 through the Google Earth Engine. Google Cloud will help to process the information. Google will also create an oil and gas infrastructure map with the help of AI. MethaneSAT's data will be overlaid on that map to help researchers understand which types of equipment have the most methane emissions. . We think this information is incredibly valuable for energy companies, researchers and the public sector to anticipate and mitigate methane emissions in components that are generally most susceptible, Yael Maguire, vice president of geo sustainability at Google, via Reuters. MethaneSAT's launch comes as governments crack down on methane emissions, Reuters reports. Additionally, while attending the COP28 climate summit, companies such as ExxonMobil and Aramco pledged to reach near-zero methane leaks by 2030. A new EPA rule would allow large methane leaks to be reported by the American public if they have access to accurate detection technology, Reuters reports.

Why Women's History Month Is in March

Why Women's History Month Is in March. In honor of the start of Women’s History Month, here’s a look back at its origins. The United States, United Kingdom and Australia all celebrate women during the month of March. The reason for this is a single day: International Women’s Day, which falls on March 8. The United Nations officially recognized the day in 1977, though it had been observed since 1911. Local groups and municipalities also began celebrating National Women’s Week in the 1970s. After gaining enough traction, the first official National Women’s Week was declared by President Jimmy Carter beginning on March 8, 1980. According to the National Women’s History alliance, states began declaring the entire month Women’s History Month before a national push came in 1986. Congress declared the first official Women’s History Month in March 1987
