The disastrous California Natural Gas Leak

This is the first aerial footage of Aliso Canyon natural gas leak, in California, and after two months engineers still can’t figure out a way to contain it.

Aerial footage filmed Dec. 17, 2015, shows potent, climate-damaging methane gases escaping from a massive natural gas leak at a storage facility in California’s Aliso Canyon, with the San Fernando valley pictured in the background.

The giant methane plumes were made visible by a specialized infrared camera operated by an Earthworks ITC-certified thermographer.
