Fun Fact

There were 13.7 million football-related tweets during the 2012 Super Bowl, 1 million of which appeared in the game's final 5 minutes.

Ghost forests. Super emitters. The meat question. The Minnesota state bird. Fires spreading, glaciers melting, science under attack. It’s been a troubling year in climate news. Here’s a collection of powerful stories:

1. Reporting Thread: This winter I traveled with @HirokoTabuchi to America’s largest oil field to make the invisible, visible. See our investigation into methane in today’s @nytimes https://nyti.ms/38oXFae

A thread from @jonah_kessel about getting those amazing shots of methane leaks--

8. We used a custom-built FLIR A8389sc. The camera converts infrared energy into an electronic signal to create moving pictures. The camera’s filter allows infrared wavelengths between 3.2 to 3.4 micrometers on the electromagnetic spectrum to pass through to the sensor.

"This winter was the first time I was assigned to photograph something that is invisible: methane gas. It was not easy."

We've got a dozen people at the NYT working on nothing but stories about climate change, writing our own stuff and helping the rest of the newsroom work solid climate information into other stories. Some of the year's biggest:

With all of the other news crashing down on us all in relentless cycles, you might have missed these important stories about our warming world and the urgent need for action on climate change. Why not read them now?

A great combination of investigate journalism and innovative visualization makes a complicated climate story compelling. This kind of reporting keeps me a @nytimes subscriber

It looks like a normal shed. But when photographed with an infrared camera that can see methane, it looks ... not like a normal shed. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/12/12/climate/texas-methane-super-emitters.html …

It’s a Vast, Invisible Climate Menace. We Made It Visible. This is just incredible work from @NYTClimate

Making invisible methane leaks visible. Incredibly strong work from @nytclimate:

Vast amounts of methane are escaping from oil and gas sites across the U.S., worsening global warming. The leaks are invisible. So we used an infrared camera and photographed them. https://nyti.ms/2YJsOk9

Next year, the Trump administration could move forward with an plan that would effectively eliminate Obama-era requirements that oil companies install technology to detect and fix methane leaks from oil and gas facilities. https://nytimes.com/interactive/2019/12/12/climate/texas-methane-super-emitters.html …

(This tweet SHOULD have said that "the Trump administration could move forward to a plan that would effectively eliminate Obama-era requirements that oil companies install technology...)

You can't see methane leaks with the unaided eye. So we aided your eye.

What you can't see can hurt the planet: methane is a powerful greenhouse gas, and leaks are plentiful. We went hunting for them with equipment that reveals the unseen. https://nyti.ms/2Pe6pIR

A thread on our big story about methane leaks, how they boost climate change — and how the companies doing the leaking are lobbying to avoid regulations requiring monitoring and action. Take a look, with new eyes. @HirokoTabuchi @jonah_kessel

Replying to @amywestervelt

Amy, as I've said before, there is a solid wall between the NYT newsroom and the advertising side. If ads influenced news coverage, we would not have produced this story — this very expensive, time-consuming story about methane emissions — at all.
