Dr. Anthony Ingraffea: methane leakage and black carbon make fracking worse than coal for climate change

Video published April 2013:

“It is much more effective in the short term term to fight climate change by reducing methane and black carbon [soot] than it is to reduce carbon dioxide. Obviously we want to reduce all three. And the computer models say that if we had begun to do that in 2010, we would…never get to that 2 degree centigrade temperature change. We’d give our kids and our grandkids a fighting chance….At all levels––production, processing, distribution, transmission, storage––an unacceptable level of methane and black carbon are being produced because of shale gas activity.”
