Methane (CH4) is a greenhouse gas problem for a variety of reasons. First of all, he has lived a long time in the atmosphere, which is in the upper atmosphere, will continue to be delayed, depending on climatic conditions ranging from 9 years to 15 years. Second, methane is more deadly, when to trap heat in the atmosphere, it is better to do the job discussions about 20 times as much carbon dioxide.
The unique chemical composition of the methane is what makes it a problem. Once a person is in the upper atmosphere, it acts like a sponge from the Earth into space infrared reflection. Therefore, to achieve a gas mantle heating time takes place on the planet. Because we can reliably sit for about 10 years, could be a large accumulation of methane in the atmosphere have a devastating impact over time.
There’s nothing we can do to prevent a natural source of methane. However, in the industry, specific areas can be processed. Through our business primarily by natural gas, petroleum, agriculture, coal mining waste water recycling systems and waste landfill methane production. All the methane produced in a certain extent, a very large scale.
Modifying our behavior to produce methane is actually a win-win situation. With carbon dioxide methane, can be used alone as an energy source. IT complexity and instability of the gas can, but we did not achieve this task more difficult. The greatest thing is, we do not stop the activity that produced methane, just modify the activity, the use of methane.
Global warming is a controversial topic. There is no doubt that it happened. The real question is what it means as temperatures rise. It seems no one really knows. It is clear that our current climate is pretty quiet. If you agree, why risk the transition to a more confusing?
