The purpose of this report is to show the range and results of methane studies in the public literature. The results and findings in the studies referenced in this report vary significantly. Scientific methods and uncertainty principles need to be employed rigorously in evaluating these studies. Given the significant variation in results, we caution against the use of any single study as the basis for policy choices that have potential implications for U.S. energy/environmental policy and the U.S. economy.
