Asst. Prof. Eric Kort was recently interviewed for WEMU’s The Green Room  program. The show was the fifth in a series on the pipelines that run under our feet, and their potential impact on our lives. Prof. Kort talked about methane pipeline leakage, which often occurs during natural gas production and pipeline transport, and could have a potentially much larger effect on global warming than carbon dioxide.
