To save the planet, we need to reduce short-lived, but potent emissions of methane alongside efforts to decarbonize. Methane (CH4) is a greenhouse gas that traps over 80 times more heat in our atmosphere than carbon dioxide over the first 20 years. Swift action to reduce methane pollution from the world’s major sources is the most immediate way we can slow warming now.
