White House Unveils Plans to Cut Methane Emissions

SUB-CLIMATE-master675

President Obama recently unveiled a new plan to start limiting the methane gasses and CO2 gasses that the USA produces. These gasses are also known as the greenhouse gasses, and will try to limit the greenhouse effect, which is one of the greater contributing factors of climate change as a whole. The president is trying to start this initiative now, because the methane levels are expected to rise due to the fact that the U.S. is experiencing a boom in oil and natural gases. None of the restrictions will affect normal citizens, but will try to limit the amount of methane that comes from landfills, and using a new technology called a “Biogas Road Map” which has multiple methane digesters to limit the amount of the harmful gas in the atmosphere.
