Climate scientists have witnessed carbon dioxide as a tortoise from the tortoise turtle race for years, however, the slower turtle enemy continued to keep catalyzing the climate change.According to a recent research, Methane is the second most-CO2 being number one- emitted greenhouse gas on earth which is around 25 percent more powerful than CO2 for keeping heat set in the surrounding. But, the gas has a much shorter lifespan as compared to carbon dioxide, remaining in the air for maximum ten years. Thus, has been ignored as a catalyst for so long.

The last week’s IPCC report finally revised the record by adding up Methane releases to the list of climate change primacies in order to block in the next decade. A professor of ecology and environmental biology at Cornell University, said that the big concern for him is that they stated that if we observe all the warming activity caused by humans over the past century CO2 has made a contribution of 0.75 degrees Celsius, whereas it is 0.5 degrees Celsius for.This new spotlight on asks for even more grave changes to the manner planet is powered, cleaned up and fed.

Where does methane come from?

Agriculture is the primary cause of Methane emissions mainly because of the waste disposal of the massive livestock and their food digestion. But apart from that, it is available in so many other ways like fossil fuels, landfills, marshes, etc.

What are the ways eliminate methane from our regular life?

The report clears it out that even if Methane only prowls in the atmosphere for a short time has impacted life taking climate change events. To eliminate the production several market players from different sectors are putting up with new policies and strategies.
