The AAAS EPI Center hosted a virtual half-day symposium to explore the landscape of carbon credit markets with respect to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions in the oil and gas sector. Presentations and discussions included the relevant science, methodologies, and procedures related to quantifying, monitoring, and verifying reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from the oil and gas sector. Additional content focused on the opportunities and risks related to carbon credits for properly decommissioning oil and gas wells.

The scientific process is endangered by a lawsuit seeking disclosure of a cache of emails between two University of Arizona climate scientists, says an amicus brief AAAS joined.
