You may have heard it called the Aliso Canyon, California, Porter Ranch, or Los Angeles natural gas leak – but whatever the name, it’s one of the biggest public health and environmental disasters of our time.

In late October of last year, Southern California Gas Company discovered a massive natural gas leak in Porter Ranch, an upscale community northwest of Los Angeles. To give you an idea of its scope, over 90,000 metric tons of methane are estimated to have spewed from the well since October 23.
Do you know how much damage the Porter Ranch leak is doing to the climate?
