Home World Met @ World Met: Atmospheric Methane at Record High
Concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide in the atmosphere are the highest they’ve been since systematic measurements of greenhouse gases began almost 40 years ago, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) announced last Wednesday. Researchers discovered a drastic increase of methane in particular, which is at a record high.
Methane is the second-largest contributor to climate change after carbon dioxide. It is 25 times more damaging to the climate than CO2 but remains in the atmosphere for less time. Methane hangs around for around 10 years, while CO2 can linger for centuries.
