Nord Stream methane leaks won’t have major impact on climate, study finds – POLITICO

At the time of the leaks, Jeffrey Kargel, a senior scientist at the Planetary Research Institute in Tucson, Ariz., told POLITICO that “the leak was really disturbing.” However, while the amount of gas lost “is obviously significant… it’s not the climate disaster that you might think,” Kargel said.

Germany, Sweden and Denmark have opened separate investigations into the incident. All three determined it was sabotage.

Several countries have been publicly blamed for these explosions, with varying degrees of proof. Ukraine said Russia was behind the attack, and Poland also suggested Moscow was responsible, something the Kremlin denied.

Earlier in March, German media reported that German prosecutors had found “traces” of evidence indicating that Ukrainians may have been involved in the explosions that blew up the Nord Stream gas pipelines. However, these reports emphasize that there is no evidence that Ukrainian authorities ordered the attack or were involved in it.

A previous New York Times report said “intelligence suggests a pro-Ukrainian group” sabotaged the pipelines.
