Let's talk about methane!
Often when the conversation turns to methane, people immediately think of cow burps. But what impact do coal and gas fugitive emissions have on our climate? Are they being properly accounted for?
And what does Australia signing the Global Methane Pledge mean for farmers? What does reducing methane emissions look like in practice?

We heard from Dr Sabina Assan, author of report Australia's coal mines can deliver two-thirds of methane cuts, and Margaret Jewell, MLA CN30 manager, about the impact of methane on climate targets and the possibilities for methane reduction in agriculture.

Dr Sabina Assan
Sabina joined Ember in 2022 as a Coal Mine Methane Analyst, raising the profile of coal mine methane and promoting the technologies and policies to measure and reduce these emissions. She has over five years experience in the environmental sector, including work in measuring fugitive methane emissions from anthropogenic sites in Europe. She holds a PhD in Environmental Sciences from Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de L’Environnement, and holds an MSci in Physics. Sabina recently lead a report on the impact of fugitive emissions from coal mines on Australia's climate targets. https://ember-climate.org/insights/research/tackling-australias-coal-mine-methane-problem/
