Why frack off Brexit might improve Europe’s Environment

 Brexit/Britain is opposing — along with oil and gas industry — an EU proposal to monitor methane emissions from fracking. Government officials called it “unnecessary red tape,” according to the Guardian, but they are clearly either not interested in addressing climate change or they are completely ignoring the lessons of the United States. The United States has seen a 30 percent spike in methane emissions since 2002 — enough to nullify any climate benefit from the country’s switch from coal-fired power generation to natural gas.
