Vermont is showing the nation that we can stop methane from landfills. But the decentralized composting system the bill's authors envisioned, closing the loop from farm to plate, is under threat by industrial haulers and processors who contaminate organic material with micro-plastic and often haul it out of state.  Organic farmers, composters, and a state regulator tell the story of Vermont's Universal Recycling Law and share their perspectives. This is the first of a 2 part series.

A week ago we were wondering what the UN climate summit in Glasgow, COP26, might deliver for humanity. We'd been told many times that the world is not on track to limit warming to less than 2 degrees, and that Glasgow was our best - if not our last - chance to fix that. At the halfway mark, Swedish activist Greta Thunberg says the talks have already failed. So is she right? Today on The Signal, while world leaders have mostly left, negotiations still have a week to run. So what's the world agreed to so far? And is there still cause for hope in the final week?

Kids Under 12 Vaccine, Reduced Cow Methane From Seaweed Diet, Lost SciFri Theme Song. November 5, 2021, Part 2

Fact Check My Feed: More Kids Can Get COVID-19 Vaccines. Now What? Many parents around the U.S. breathed a sigh of relief—or an even more intense emotional reaction—at the long-awaited news that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had signed off on advising the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11 this week. The recommendation came after a unanimous vote from the agency's committee of outside vaccine experts. And last week, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the shot after a review of clinical trial data found both low risk and high efficacy in a smaller, kid-calibrated dose of the vaccine. University of Saskatchewan virologist Angela Rasmussen joins Ira to look at the data behind the FDA's long-anticipated decision. They also discuss the rationale behind booster shots for high-risk adults, what it means that deer in Iowa have been caught transmitting the virus, COVID-pragmatic holiday planning, and other pandemic news.   In First Real-World Experiment, Red Seaweed Cuts Methane In Cows By More Than Half Methane emissions are a hot topic—largely because it's a big contributor to climate change. Methane makes up about 10% of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. 27% of that comes from the burps of ruminant animals, such as cows. In April, Science Friday did a story about research that showed promising results when steers were fed small amounts of the red algae Asparagopsis in their diets. At the time, these experiments were only done in a closely controlled university setting. Now, the first real-world study on a working dairy farm has been completed. The results? Methane released by the seaweed-eating cows was 52% less on average than their non-seaweed-munching counterparts. Coming on the heels of the Biden administration's methane emissions reduction plan, SciFri producer Kathleen Davis sits down with three key players in this milestone: Joan Salwen, CEO of Blue Ocean Barns in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, the company that produces the Asparagopsis seaweed powder; Dr. Breanna Roque, animal science consultant at Blue Ocean Barns in Townsville, Queensland, Australia; and Albert Straus, founder and CEO of Straus Family Creamery in Marshall, California.   The Science Friday Theme Song That Got Lost In The Mail Back in 1998, comedian and author Steve Allen, first host of The Tonight Show, joined Ira on Science Friday to talk about the importance of critical thinking. Allen had written a book called Dumbth, calling for improvements in the public's logical reasoning abilities. Ira was a longtime fan of Allen's, and eagerly invited him to discuss the book. During the interview, Allen also took to the studio piano to play his signature song, “This Could Be The Start of Something Big.” As the comedian was leaving, Ira jokingly remarked that Science Friday could use a theme song of its own. Several years later, while cleaning the cluttered SciFri office, staff uncovered an unopened box of mail—including an envelope from Hollywood containing a single cassette tape, marked “Theme Song For Science Friday—Steve Allen.” As part of Science Friday's 30th anniversary celebrations, Ira and SciFri director Charles Bergquist recount the story of the tape, and finally premiere the song, written and performed by the late Steve Allen.

The professor who heads the Oxford Net Zero Initiative says farmers should be credited for reducing methane emissions. Professor Myles Allen believes the industry won't have to reduce livestock numbers to meet the global pledge to cut methane levels by 30% by 2030. He wants the government to measure methane levels separately, not as part of a carbon footprint calculation. Farmers who want to sign up for future grant schemes may be compelled to do a carbon audit of their farms. These audits will form part of new plans for the farm payments which are to replace CAP in Scotland. The Scottish government has announced a £51 million pound fund for the transition, starting in 2025. Mari Gougeon, minister for rural affairs and islands, describes how the new system is being designed. Some money will still be paid direct to farmers based on how much land they have, the rest will be linked to environmental improvements. Also, we look at how carbon audits work. We speak to someone who carries them out and a farmer who's been doing them on his land for five years. How is farming seen by delegates at COP 26 in Glasgow?

As the energy industry considers how we can make a meaningful contribution to the energy transition, it would be difficult to place too much emphasis on the important role reducing methane emissions from oil and gas operations will play. This is because methane is simply much more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Calculations on the effect of methane emissions on climate change over a 100-year period have shown that emissions of one ton of methane, will have the same effect as 28 tons of carbon dioxide. As methane does not remain in the atmosphere as long as carbon dioxide, acting now can make a huge difference in the short-term. Within oil and gas operations, methane emissions are highly actionable, and there are a range of ways to rapidly reduce the footprint of the industry. Listen to “Energy Transition: Reducing methane emissions in oil and gas" to hear Drew Pomerantz, GHG emissions principal, and Sam Tilley, energy transition – market and business analyst, both from Schlumberger, discuss how we can reduce methane emissions in our industry to help achieve industry targets for a net-zero world.

Joining us today are Sydney Isaacs, Managing Director and Head of the Houston Office along with Blair Hennessy, Managing Director based out of Abernathy's New York office. Sydney and Blair were wonderful guests and we had a really great discussion!We kick off the episode with some background on Abernathy MacGregor and how they help their clients navigate complex situations with communications, engagement and advocacy expertise. One topic their team has focused on is employee activism and its developing role in M&A. We discussed the debate many companies have on what social topics they should touch on and how employees are driving change. As you will hear, Blair walked us through advising an M&A client through a deal, how they can best prepare for the deal to leak and the best scenarios for addressing stakeholders when it inevitably happens. Their data is striking on how often deals leak and the the patterns across sectors, seasons or deal size.​​​​To start the show, Mike Bradley shared a few slides showing the US and ECB balance sheets to debt ratio and touched on the OPEC+ meeting taking place later this week. Matt Portillo had a new update from TPH Research on the LCFS market as well as an auto sector earnings update.

More than 100 countries have agreed to cut global methane emissions by a third by 2030. RNZ's climate reporter Hamish Cardwell is covering the COP26 UN climate summit and filed this report.

More than 100 nations sign up to a 30 percent cut by 2030. It is one of the most potent greenhouse gases and responsible for a third of current warming from human activities.

It is the third day of the international climate change summit, COP26. Today, it was announced that more than a hundred countries have signed up to an agreement to cut methane emissions by 30% by 2030. In September the United States of America and the European Union announced the pledge to cut methane emissions. Now, more than a hundred countries have signed up to the pledge. The European Union Commission Chief, Ursula von der Leyen, claimed cutting methane was "one of the most effective things we can do to reduce near-term global warming." Also in the programme: an agreement to end deforestation; and local school board elections in America.

President Biden was at the United Nations climate summit (COP26) in Glasgow today, announcing that more than 90 countries will try to cut methane emissions by at least 30% by the end of the decade. “This is low-hanging fruit in the emissions battle. … It's a very clear way to reduce future warming, just looking at methane,” says Paasha Mahdavi, UC Santa Barbara professor who studies energy and environmental politics.  KCRW looks at how human industrial activities produce methane, and how we can change behaviors to reduce those emissions.  Also, when it comes to the airline industry, the number of people traveling is nearly back to pre-pandemic levels, but fewer flights are happening, and fewer pilots and flight attendants are working. That means higher prices, crowded planes, and more angry passengers, including those who don't want to wear masks.  “Good Timing with Jo Firestone,” a documentary streaming on Peacock, looks at how a former writer for “The Tonight Show” started teaching a free online comedy class for seniors ages 66-88 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
