    Popularity of the GOP tax scam cut drops precipitously every month. Good luck using this pile of rubbish as a campaign tool this year.

    The American oil and gas industry is leaking more methane than the government thinks ó much more, a new study says. Since methane is a powerful greenhouse gas, that is bad news for climate change.

    The new study, published Thursday in the journal Science, puts the rate of methane emissions from domestic oil and gas operations at 2.3 percent of total production per year, which is 60 percent higher than the current estimate from the Environmental Protection Agency. That might seem like a small fraction of the total, but it represents an estimated 13 million metric tons lost each year, or enough natural gas to fuel 10 million homes.
    A recent study found that natural gas power plants could actually be worse for climate change than coal plants if their leakage rate rose above 4 percent.

    Neither the E.P.A.ís estimates of leakage rates nor the higher estimates in the new study suggest that gas has crossed that threshold. Still, experts said that curbing methane emissions from oil and gas operations could prove an important climate policy.

    If there is good news in the report, it is that much of the leakage is fixable at relatively low cost. The lost methane is worth an estimated $2 billion a year.

    FYI: Pruitt has been attempting to undermine methane regulation by EPA since he was AG in Oklahoma--at direct request of the oil and gas industry. See this email obtained by FOIA. And ghost-written letter Pruitt sent to EPA's Lisa Jackson during Obama era. Pruitt changed 37 words.

    This was one of Pruitt's first major acts as EPA administrator. Killing EPA data collection effort on methane emissions. If you don't have data on air pollution, you can't really regulated it properly. Stop the data collection.....

    Dear Sir or Madam: The United States government no longer wants to know how much methane gas you are leaking into the atmosphere. Thank you for your continued support....(Letter sent out to the industry after Pruitt killed data collection effort)

    Duckworth 2020.

    (I know she was born in Thailand but her dad was American. I suspect that wouldn't stop Trump's racist birther claims, though.)

    A teenager out for a leisurely beachside jog in Canada was detained by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers after she accidentally crossed the border when she stopped to take a photo, CBC News reports. She was held in Washington state for two weeks.
    Roman was held in custody for two weeks while immigration officials on both sides of the border tried to determine if she was allowed back into Canada. She was discharged on June 6, according to U.S. government documents obtained by CBC News.
