Two gases are at the heart of the energy transition: methane and hydrogen.
Methane is bad, yes. But what about hydrogen? The fossil fuel industry wants us to think hydrogen is the future, and while there might be some limited role for hydrogen in a clean energy economy, it is far from the panacea the oil and gas industry are pushing and has the potential to do more harm than good. What do climate activists need to know about these much-hyped gases? What is their proper role in our energy future? And where do we, as active climate citizens, need to focus our efforts?
Climate Action Now has tapped two experts to help us sort fact from hype and chart an informed path forward.
Our first speaker, Dr. Robert Howarth is an expert on methane, and one of the most cited environmental scientists in the world. Bob will give us the science on methane and explain why it poses a serious threat to the planet.
Our second speaker, James Walsh, is Policy Director at Food & Water Watch, a leading environmental organization. Jim will give us the good, bad, and ugly of hydrogen and tell us what policies are needed to promote green hydrogen and scale back methane.
As always, we’ll then fire up the Climate Action Now app to put knowledge into action with our signature Action Party segment where we’ll use the app to send hundreds of letters to political and business leaders demanding sensible solutions to the methane problem and policies for scaling up green hydrogen.
It’s going to be informative, hard-hitting, fun, and meaningful. Don’t miss it. Sign up now!
