For many years, scientists believed that only carbon dioxide is the main cause of climate change. They found that the second-most emitted greenhouse gas on the planet is “Methane”. With the recent IPCC report last week, scientists finally added Methane Emissions to the list of climate change.
Carbon dioxide has contributed 0.75 degrees Celsius and methane 0.5 degrees Celsius. The methane came from almost everywhere like large amounts of food waste, plants decompose without oxygen, landfills, marshes, fossil fuels and much more.
Methane (CH4) is emitted during the production and transport of coal, natural gas, and oil. Methane emissions also result from livestock and other agricultural practices, land use and by the decay of organic waste in municipal solid waste landfills.
