*Climate change is the large scale, long term shift in the planets weather patterns or average temperature
*While methane is a more potent greenhouse gas than CO2, there is over 200 times more CO2in the atmosphere. Hence the amount of warming methane contributes is 28% of the warmingCO2 contributes.
The increase in temperature due to methane emission is a contributing factor in:
*sea level rise
*the melting of the polar ice caps
*increase chance of stronger storms being produced
*rice agriculture is a big source of atmospheric methane, possibly the biggest of man-made methane sources.
