Worrying about methane emissions is the greatest waste of time in the entire lexicon of global warming fanaticism. Converting methane to CO2 is done by the process of "flaring" -- setting fire to the stack gas coming off from an oil well, as is done daily throughout the middle east, where the oil is valued but the CH4 is not.
The number "Global Warming Potential" is completely false, a nonsense calculation thought up by the IPCC to drum up more concern beyond just CO2. Both CH4 and CO2 are far less important GHG's than good old H2O.
Coal - Mining - CH4 - Escape - Workers
When you're doing underground coal mining, you have to let the trapped CH4 escape or else you'll poison the workers. The practice of bringing a "canary in the coalmine" was specifically intended to sacrifice the bird's life to detect dangerous levels of methane so the miners could get out quickly.
The most important thing about CH4 that everybody forgets is that it drifts up from the surface to the stratosphere reasonably quickly, and there it is oxidized:
H2O - Ppm - Stratosphere - Top - Troposphere
This is why H2O remains about 4 ppm even in the stratosphere, when it has supposedly "frozen out" at the top of the troposphere. As for CO2, changing the stratospheric concentration from 400 ppm to 402 ppm is an undetectable change.
if I were the Chinese government, I'd pay a tiny bit of lip-service to mentioning methane, but in fact to nothing at all about it. It goes away via natural processes.
People - Possibility - Catastrophe
frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.”
THE core objective of the $2,000,000,000,000 US per year (2 Trillion) Climate Crisis Industry has always been the centralised control of human beings and curtailment of free-market, capitalist ‘excesses’.
ENERGY - Rationing - Control - Carbon - Dioxide
ENERGY rationing and the control of carbon dioxide (the direct byproduct of cheap, abundant hydrocarbon energy) key to the socialist Left’s Malthusian and misanthropic agenda...
