Recent rises in levels of methane in our atmosphere is being driven by biological sources, such as swamp gas, cow burps, or rice fields, rather than fossil fuel emissions, new research suggests.
A new study pinpoints agriculture, not fossil fuels, as the cause of rising methane levels since 2006. The post Methane Emissions Are Spiking, But Don’t Blame Fossil Fuels Just Yet appeared first on ThinkProgress.

More carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and rising temperatures cause rice agriculture to release more of the potent greenhouse gas methane (CH4) for each kilogram of rice it produces, new research reveals.
BARCELONA (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - A sharp increase in methane, a potent greenhouse gas, in the Earth's atmosphere since 2007 is the result of higher emissions from biological sources such as rice paddies, cattle and swamps ra...
