Sharp rise in #methane levels threatens world #climate targets | The Guardian

Tierr@_de_N@die: We haven't still found the way to reduce enough the CO2 emissions and now we discover that methane emissions, a much worst greenhouse effect gas, they are also rising and we do not understand why. Good news for meat eaters, it seems that cattle is not the main problem, but we could be face a phenomenon with no easy solution...

In a paper published this month by the American Geophysical Union, researchers say sharp rises in levels of methane – which is a powerful greenhouse gas – have strengthened over the past four years. Urgent action is now required to halt further increases in methane in the atmosphere, to avoid triggering enhanced global warming and temperature rises well beyond 2C.
