Methane emissions are increasing in large part because of the oil and gas industry. The boom in fracking, outdated and inefficient control technology, and leaky gas wells and pipelines are major sources of the methane problem. Emissions of this potent greenhouse gas from U.S. oil and gas operations alone are projected to increase 4.5% by 2018.
