Google and EDF’s cosmic collaboration: Mapping methane emissions worldwide, spotlight on US impact

Google has partnered with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) to track global methane emissions and oil and gas infrastructure from space. This collaboration aims to pinpoint methane sources and curb emissions, crucial for immediate climate action.

EDF’s MethaneSAT, launching soon, will provide extensive data, aided by Google’s AI mapping of fossil fuel infrastructure. This comprehensive approach promises valuable insights for energy sectors, researchers, and policy makers, facilitating targeted mitigation efforts.

The initiative underscores a collective commitment to combatting climate change effectively. The public release of MethaneSAT’s data via Google Earth Engine signifies a significant step towards transparency and informed decision-making in environmental stewardship.
