The National Oil and Gas Threat Map
The National Oil and Gas Threat Map is a new interactive map which is designed to raise awareness of the risks from oil and gas methane pollution.
The map shows areas of the population which live in areas with a potential health threat from oil and gas pollution. If you select a state on the map you can view details on the number of people and schools which are within the 'Threat Radius' from active oil and gas wells, compressors and processors.
The map includes over 100 infrared videos that make visible volatile organic compounds emitted by oil and gas wells, which are invisible to the naked eye. You can also watch over 50 video interviews with citizens impacted by oil and gas methane pollution across the United States.
