Biden: Over 80 countries vow to cut methane emissions by 30%

Over 80 countries have pledged to cut methane emissions by 30% by 2030, United States President Joe Biden stated at the COP26 on Tuesday. He added the number is "approaching 100," representing nearly half the global methane emissions.

Biden outlined his administration's project to achieve the 30% reduction goal in two steps. "One through our Environmental Protection Agency that's going to reduce methane losses through new and existing gas pipelines, and one through the department of transportation to reduce potentially dangerous leaks through natural gas lines." He also brought up the plan to reduce emissions in agriculture, particularly farms, which are "a significant source" of methane.
