Earthworks’ Community Empowerment Project (CEP) works with communities to protect their health and the climate by making visible normally invisible air pollution from oil and gas facilities. With video evidence in hand, we work side-by-side with impacted residents to pressure regulators and companies to reduce pollution.
Together we spotlight regulators’ responsibility to protect the public from the industry’s pollution — and hold them accountable when they don’t.
These videos were taken as part of the Earthworks Community Empowerment Project. Shortlink: http://bit.ly/CEPvideos
All video taken by a certified thermographer with an industry standard optical gas imaging camera, the FLIR GasFinder 320. The $100,000 camera is specially calibrated to detect methane and other VOCs, and is used by industry and regulators for that purpose.
