  • Methane and Climate Changeby Pete Smith; David Reay; Andre Van Amstel

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 95.00

    Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas and is estimated to be responsible for approximately one-fifth of man-made global warming. Per kilogram, it is 25 times more powerful than carbon dioxide over a 100-year time horizon -- and global warming is likely to enhance methane release from a number of sources. Current natural and man-made sources include... more...
