FLIR imaging technology illustrates the intensity of methane emissions from a venting tank near a well in Routt County earlier this year. The fossil fuel industry is Colorado's largest industrial source of methane, which is one of the most potent greenhouse gasses fueling climate change.

The state Air Quality Control Commission votes on new regulations tomorrow that could change how often oil and gas wells are inspected. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh spoke with Allyn Harvey and Leslie Robinson, co-founders of the Garfield County Taxpayer Accountability Project, about what’s at stake.
