Ethane Pollution

Ethane Pollution

In this Feb. 25, 2015 photo, a gas flare is seen at a natural gas processing facility near Williston, N.D. A team led by researchers at the University of Michigan has found that fossil fuel production at the Bakken Formation in North Dakota and Montana is emitting roughly 2 percent of the ethane detected in the Earth's atmosphere. Along with its chemical cousin methane, ethane is a hydrocarbon that is a significant component of natural gas. Once in the atmosphere, ethane reacts with sunlight to form ozone.(AP Photo/Matthew Brown)
