Abstract

This paper discusses the effects of methane gas which causes sever global warming in the atmosphere. Global warming becomes main issue in economics in the 21st century. Because global climate change becomes more dangerous and every nation realized that this is due to greenhouse gas emissions. Methane is dangerous greenhouse gas, since it is 21 times more global warming potential than carbon dioxide. All the nations talk about the reduction of only carbon dioxide and no nation stress on methane reduction. Due to global warming the ocean levels are increasing, as a result most of the costal areas will submerge by 2050, and some insects and animals will extinct. In this paper an attempt has been taken to discuss the aspects of methane gas emissions and the importance of methane gas emissions reduction.
