Global Methane Initiative Moves Forward

Global Methane Initiative Moves Forward

Methane is the second most important GHG and is 25 times more potent than CO2 over a 100-year period. Methane emissions currently contribute to over one-third of today’s anthropogenic warming. Methane is a short-lived GHG and thus methane reduction plays a critical role in reducing the near term rate of warming and avoiding climatic tipping points. Methane recovery and use delivers clean energy as well as improving local air and water quality. Because methane is the primary component of natural gas, reducing emissions can be very cost-effective using available technologies and practices. U.S. EPA estimates that by 2020, reductions of more than 1,500 MMtCO2E can be achieved at low cost. Methane is an important tropospheric ozone precursor. Studies have shown that reducing global methane emissions by 20% could avoid more than 300,000 ozone-related mortalities globally in 203...
