As the Obama administration began to pursue actions to reduce methane emissions, the Environmental Protection Agency released its own strategy to reduce methane and ozone-forming pollution from the oil and natural gas industry. The White House strategy outlined regulatory and voluntary initiatives to reduce methane emissions from sources including oil and gas operations, landfills, coal mines and agriculture. The administration explained that efforts to reduce methane emissions can result in benefits affecting the economy, climate change and public health. The EPA and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have identified methane as one of the most significant greenhouse gases that contribute to potential changes in the Earth's climate.
