As federal regulators and large upstream oil and gas companies grapple with the problem of getting their emissions of methane under control, at the other end of the pipeline, where local distribution companies (LDCs) deliver natural gas to residential and commercial customers, a quiet revolution is taking place with the adoption of new technologies to get control of emissions of the powerful greenhouse gas.
One positive from the LDCs’ perspective is that, as measured by the Environmental Protection Agency, methane emissions from the nation’s natural gas systems — including transmission, distribution and storage systems — have decreased by almost one-quarter over the past three decades.
“Natural gas systems were the second largest anthropogenic source category of CH4 (methane) emissions in the United States in 2018 with 140.0 million metric tons carbon dioxide equivalent (MMT COշe.) of CH4 emitted into the atmosphere. Those emissions have decreased by 43.4 MMT COշe (23.7%)

YI Technology has made a name for itself as a company that offers products for prices lower than the brand names. It has now announced two new home security solutions, both powered by advanced artificial intelligence (A.I.).
The first is the Kami Mini, an indoor camera with a small form factor that’s perfect for keeping an eye on things inside the house. The Kami Mini uses facial detection and will alert you when it detects human movement. The A.I. helps filter out false alarms caused by pets, insects, and other types of movement.
It also works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. You can ask either one of the smart assistants to show the feed on a connected display if you’d like to monitor the camera on a larger feed than your phone.
The Kami Mini is also certified through Noonlight to help users reach the correct emergency center. Customers
