Nathan Phillips

Earth & Environment Professor Nathan Phillips has written an article featured on the online new source, The Conversation.

Phillips’ piece”Will Obama’s ‘fugitive methane’ plan reduce or increase our dependence on natural gas?” focuses on “President Obama’s proposal to reduce leaks of methane gas from oil and gas drilling” and highlights how the language of the plan suggests a long term reliance on natural gas, “whose by-product of combustion, carbon dioxide, is the planet’s largest agent of climate change.” Phillips then discusses the ramifications of such a long term reliance and offers alternative solutions to how natural gas should be treated in the coming years.
