Title: Capping Methane Emissions
Authors: Singh, Jay Shankar
Issue Date: Sep-2010
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: METHANE is one of the greenhouse gases adding to the net energy input of the lower atmosphere thus resulting in an increased global temperature (also called global warming). During the past 200 years, its concentration has increased dramatically because of an imbalance between global sources and sinks. According to the report of the IPCC, the atmospheric concentration of methane has more than doubled during the past 200 years, rising over the past 15 years by an average of 1% every year. The increasing concentration of methane is, therefore, a cause for concern.
