Earthworks engages with communities to help protect their health and environment from the adverse impacts of mineral and energy development while promoting sustainable energy solutions. Achieving a safe and stable climate is not possible without significant reductions in methane pollution from domestic oil and gas production. Earthworks supports communities living in oil and gas development areas to make the invisible methane gas visible by making available optical gas imaging to document the scale of the pollution problem. The award supports Earthworks' Community Empowerment Project to highlight the negative impacts of methane pollution in order to develop and advocate for enhanced regulatory protections that prioritize health and climate considerations.

Earthworks is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting communities and the environment from the adverse impacts of mineral and energy development while promoting sustainable solutions. Reducing methane emissions as soon as possible is necessary for reducing near term climate change risks. Even in the absence of strong federal action through 2020, Earthworks is building evidence for future federal action, as well as action in states that are not currently considering regulating methane. In doing so, Earthworks is utilizing advanced infrared cameras systematically in partnership with communities living in oil and gas development areas to make the invisible methane gas visible and document the scale of the pollution problem.
