150 billion cubic metres of gas is burnt off or 'flared' every year - before it even leaves the gas fields. That's $20 billion worth - enough to supply the whole of the United States for three months. Flaring sends 350 million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere - more than cancelling out the proposed annual reductions under Kyoto. Earth Report examines possible solutions in Russia and Nigeria.
