Rising methane due to mining and wetlands

A rise in atmospheric methane emissions after 2006 is likely due to expanding wetlands and an increase in emissions from mining of fossil fuels.Methane is a much more powerful greenhouse gas than CO2 and scientists estimate it is responsible for 20 per cent of recent global warming.Levels stabilised in the early 2000s and scientists suspected this was due to better management of wetland rice crops (which produce methane from anaerobic decomposition), and better management of fugitive emissions from mining coal and other fossil fuels.
