Fossil fuels and agriculture have driven methane emissions to record highs across the globe claim two new studies. Methane is a colorless gas and comes from natural and human-made sources. The gas is a danger to humans because it traps heat into the atmosphere exacerbating the climate crisis and forms ground-level ozone, which is dangerous to our health.
Methane, the primary component of natural gas, spends twelve years in the atmosphere. That is significantly less than CO2, which lingers for over a century. But per unit, methane is twenty times more potent than CO2.
