The concentrations of methane in the atmosphere have doubled recently, which is why it is important to us to reduce emissions of methane. The major source of methane in the atmosphere is produced by anthropogenic activity, such as forest and land burning and in the digestive process of ruminant animals. Methane production from ruminant animal is affected by two main factors: digestibility of the feed and quantity of

    Anthropogenic Sources of Atmospheric Methane Introduction The atmosphere has always contained the Greenhouse Gas methane. Along with carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and water vapor, methane helps to create the natural greenhouse effect. These gases trap some of the sun's energy and keep the Earth at a warm enough temperature to sustain life. If the occurrence of any of these gases in the atmosphere is increased, the natural greenhouse effect will intensify and further warm

    blocks the Sun’s energy from escaping from the Earth? Unlike a greenhouse, the Earth does not have a layer of glass over it! Instead, molecules in our atmosphere called greenhouse gasses absorb the heat. Greenhouse gasses include water vapor, methane, ozone, nitrous oxide, and carbon dioxide. There may not be much of some of these gasses in our atmosphere, but they can have a big impact. Each greenhouse gas molecule is made of three or more atoms that are bonded loosely together. These molecules

    for 18% of the GHG emissions. In contrast, transport makes up just 13% of the world’s greenhouse gas footprint. Moreover, cows turn out methane gas which is 23 times as damaging as CO2. Furthermore, livestock rearing utilizes 30% of the earth’s surface. In light of this, Johnson suggests that Dr.Pachauri is perhaps correct to be anxious about emissions of methane gas from livestock. Boris affirms that: although Dr.Pachauri’s scrutiny was accurate; his proposition to cut down on meat was ridiculous

    Biogas is a clean environment friendly fuel. Raw biogas contains about 55–65% methane (CH4), 30–45% carbon dioxide (CO2), traces of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and fractions of water vapours. A typical composition of biogas can be seen on the following table: Table 1: Biogas typical composition Component Formula Concentration (% by vol.) Methane CH4 55-70 Carbon dioxide CO2 30-45 Nitrogen N2 0-5 Oxygen O2 <1 Hydrocarbons CnH2n+2 <1 Hydrogen sulfide H2S 0-0.5 Ammonia NH3 0-0.05 Water (vapour) H2O 1-5

    primary cause for the destruction of our planet. By simply living, humans are contributing to the unceasing rise in temperature of the earth’s atmosphere predominantly created by the greenhouse effect. Greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, trap heat in the atmosphere. A mass amount of greenhouse gases develop from the burning of fossil fuels. However, deforestation, industrial processes and a few agricultural practices still transmit gases into the air. Climate scientists can agree

    Most of the previous attempts to study and observe Titan had been severely impeded by the presence of a thick and obscuring orange haze that covers the moon in its entirety due to the combination of hydrogen and carbon (which both originated from methane that had been split by the sun’s ultraviolet rays) and nitrogen. Now, however, the Cassini spacecraft has truly revealed the moon through the utilization of its advanced radars, cameras, and infrared technologies. That being said, since it seems to
