The Center For Clean Air Policy

The Center For Clean Air Policy CCAP works to significantly advance cost-effective and pragmatic air quality and climate policy through analysis, dialogue and education to reach a broad range of policymakers and stakeholders worldwide.

Since 1985, the Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) has been a recognized world leader in climate and air quality policy and is the only independent, nonprofit think tank working exclusively on those issues at the local, U.S. national and international levels. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., CCAP helps policymakers around the world develop, promote and implement innovative, market-based solutions to major climate, air quality and energy problems that balance both environmental and economic interests.

Mission: To significantly advance cost-effective and pragmatic air quality and climate policy through analysis, dialogue and education to reach a broad range of policymakers and stakeholders worldwide.

NASA scientists have teamed up with the state of California to map methane sources in order to reduce emissions of this potent greenhouse gas. The team identified more than 550 individual point sources emitting plumes of highly concentrated methane. Ten percent of these sources, considered super-emitters, contributed the majority of the emissions detected. The team estimates that statewide, super-emitters are responsible for about a third of California's total methane budget.

A new interactive tool, the Methane Source Finder, presents the California methane source data alongside infrastructure information. The data are derived from airborne remote-sensing instruments, surface-monitoring networks and satellites. http://methane.jpl.nasa.gov/

Ice fronts have retreated, rocky peaks are more exposed, fewer icebergs drift to the ocean: the branching network of glaciers that empty into Greenland’s Sermilik Fjord has changed significantly in the last half-century. Comparing Landsat satellite images from 1972 and 2019, those changes and more come into view.

E.P.A. to Roll Back Regulations on Methane, a Potent Greenhouse Gas

In proposed backsliding on basic rules that call on #oilandgas companies to find and repair #methane leaks across the value chain, Trump’s EPA says no to highly cost-effective, common-sense controls that many companies support in their efforts to position natural gas as a cleaner bridge fuel in the fight against climate change.

If the proposal is adopted, the government would no longer require oil and gas companies to inspect for and repair methane leaks from wells and pipelines.

STOP AIR POLLUTION AND SAVE OUR PLANET MUSIC VIDEO I am a songwriter that cares about our planet. I felt a duty to write a song and make a video to make a difference. The video is about endangered species, deforestation, global warming, and how men like Donald Trump are destroying the planet. Here is our save the planet music video.
