Dimitri Lafleur talks about a new report by the Melbourne Energy Institute which found that unmeasured methane leakage and fugitive emissions from unconventional gasfields could cause Australia to fail its Paris climate commitments. In this podcast, Dimitri Lafleur speaks about methane leakage rates in US unconventional gas fields which are 10-25 times higher than the Australian government reports to the UNFCCC, and up to 170 times higher than those claimed by the gas industry. Dimitri is currently in pursuit of a PhD at the University of Melbourne, researching the climate impact of fugitive emissions of the fossil fuel industry.
