Methane Gas Leak In California May Impact Climate Change, Porter Ranch Residents Want Facility Closed Down [Video]

Video of a methane gas leak in California recently released by the Environment Defense Fund (EDF) reveals a bird’s-eye view of an ecological disaster of epic proportions. Discharging as much as 110,000 pounds of methane into the air every hour, the gas leak near the town of Porter Ranch, California, was initially discovered over two months ago and continues to spew out the greenhouse gas.

In a related Inquisitr report, the gas leak from the Aliso Canyon well in Northern Los Angeles County is estimated to be the largest in U.S. history.

With the help from nonprofit organization Earthworks and infrared technology, the EDF video confirms the massive amount of methane, normally invisible to the naked eye, rising out of the ground near Porter Ranch.
