This May Be The Biggest Environmental Catastrophe No One Is Talking About
- Methane, the primary element in natural gas, is a potent greenhouse gas and is responsible for 10 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. It packs 84 times more warming power than carbon dioxide in the first 20 years that itâ€™s present in the atmosphere, according to the EDF. The environmental group estimates that reducing global methane emissions by 45 percent could have the same short-term benefit as shuttering 1,000 coal-fired power plants.
