Global methane emissions soar to record high

Gas burning (stock image). Credit: © Leonid Ikan / stock.adobe.com Global emissions of methane have reached the highest levels on record. Increases are being driven primarily by growth of emissions from coal mining, oil and natural gas production, cattle and sheep ranching, and landfills. Between 2000 and 2017, levels of the potent greenhouse gas barreled…
