The new project, detailed this week in the journal Environmental Science and Technology , is being led by researchers at Colorado State University, the Environmental Defense Fund, and Google Earth Outreach. Methane, the main component of natural gas, is a powerful greenhouse gas many times more potent than carbon dioxide in the short-term. It is also leaking at high rates from aging urban pipe systems.
