Lit­tle growth ob­served in In­dia’s meth­ane emis­sions

Iran Daily - - Cultural Heritage & Environment -

Meth­ane is the sec­ond most pow­er­ful green­house gas and con­cen­tra­tions are ris­ing in the at­mos­phere. Be­cause of its po­tency and quick de­cay in the at­mos­phere, coun­tries have rec­og­nized that re­duc­tion of meth­ane emis­sions are a means to­ward mit­i­gat­ing global warm­ing.

In light of the new in­ter­na­tional cli­mate agree­ment, the Paris Agree­ment, there is in­creas­ing need for coun­tries to ac­cu­rately quan­tify their green­house gas emis­sions and to have in­de­pen­dent checks on this re­port­ing, Sci­ence Daily wrote .

In one of the big­gest in­de­pen­dent stud­ies of its kind, sci­en­tists from the Univer­sity of Bris­tol have con­cluded that there has been lit­tle growth in In­dia’s meth­ane emis­sions over the last few years and that re­port­ing of these emis­sions by the coun­try’s au­thor­i­ties is ac­cu­rate.
