PULLMAN, Wash. – Jean-Sabin McEwen knocks out a Web search for “North Dakota,” “night sky” and “flaring,” and quickly finds a picture from space showing a glowing cluster bigger than Minneapolis. It’s from oil and gas fields burning off methane, producing as much greenhouse gas in a year as 1 million cars.
