New York Times Features Maine Mountain Protected by AMC

AMC Applauds U.S.-Canada Joint Statement on Climate

The AMC applauds the agreement announced last week between President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to reduce methane pollution from existing oil and gas operations. The oil and gas industry leaks more than 9 million metric tons of methane pollution each year – enough to power over 6.5 million homes for a year.

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, more than 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide, and near term reductions are essential to curbing climate change. Among other negative impacts, warmer temperatures are associated with unhealthy levels of ozone pollution. Ozone is particularly harmful to children and anyone exercising outside.
