About methane emissions

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas responsible for about 25% of the human-caused global warming we feel today. It packs more than 70 times the warming power of carbon dioxide over a 20-year period. In addition to its significant climate impacts, methane contributes to ground-level ozone, a key component of smog.
