The AR6 recognizes that the release of  Methane, a greenhouse gas over 80 times more potent than CO2 when first released, poses a serious threat.  Stored below the melting permafrost, emitted by cows and other ruminants,  seeping from manure pits and landfills,  rising into the atmosphere from fossil fuels, and emitted by wetlands, rice paddies and fish farms, it is a monster we must control.  As the oceans warm and expand, more methane seeps up from the depths where it has been stored for millennia.  Experts on this panel present a variety of plans to capture and to slow the release of human-caused methane.
